Final decision on new Fayette school boundaries weeks away
The following is a school rezoning update from Chairman Price released on Tuesday:
Dear FCPS Families:
Final decisions about future changes to school attendance boundaries in Fayette County are still at least several weeks away. The Fayette County Board of Education met this afternoon in a joint work session with the school rezoning committee to hear a formal presentation of the proposed new school zones and the process the committee followed in its year-long deliberation.
We are very appreciative of the 24 volunteer committee members who committed countless hours to ensuring this process was open, transparent and exhaustive. Their attention to detail and their willingness to consider every comment from our community was exceptional.
The school board now needs time to consider the plan that we have been given, as well as the continuing public input we are receiving. Our board will be scheduling a work session to discuss the proposal in greater detail and consider how best to move forward in advance of the opening of two new elementary schools in the fall of 2016 and a new high school in the fall of 2017.
In the spirit of openness and public accountability that has been the hallmark of this effort, we will send you an update once we set a schedule for our next steps. Thank you for your engagement and participation in this endeavor.
Fayette County Board of Education Chairman
