As our communities grow districts shift, including school zones.  District lines are redrawn every 10 years following completion of the United States census, and the counties of Volusia, Flagler, and Brevard are amongst those who are currently in the process of adopting new district boundaries for the 2022 and 2023 calendar school year.

Up for review and consideration will be school attendance boundaries and zoning based on detailed population data.  The attendance boundary is a geographic area from which the students are eligible to attend a local school.  A local school district determines the school attendance boundaries for schools within its district.  Zoning means children who live in the school’s zone are guaranteed a place at their local school.  Of note:  If the school has extra places, children who live outside the zone can apply for those places.

The objective of the redistricting process is to redraw the districts so they are compact adjoining, and as close in population as possible.  This is necessary to control school capacities as the population in certain areas shift and grow.

Obviously, this process can have an immense impact on parents and children.  Most of you moved to a specific school zone to ensure your child could attend the school of your choice.  Concern about a possible school change is valid.  Having to uproot students that are thriving in their current environment is unsettling.  They have favorite teachers, best buddies, and most likely feel comfortable.  Sometimes a school change can affect the parent’s job to school proximity, transportation, afterschool care, and more.
