Updated:SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. —
Seminole County's massive undertaking of rezoning elementary school boundaries finally came to an end.
The final west phase of rezoning the county’s elementary schools was completed in a swift vote Wednesday night.
The school board approved the superintendent's recommendation of new zones for the western part of the county.
The west phase has fewer children who will be affected, about 300, compared to 950 in the eastern phase.
It involved five schools in the zone.
The superintendent's recommendation was a modified version of Core Committee Plan No. 457.
The plan adjusts Forest City Elementary boundaries and relieve overcrowding at Spring Lake.
The shift of students will then take up excess capacity at Wekiva and Sable Point Elementary.
There will be no changes to Bear Lake's attendance zone.
“We'll be all ramped up for kindergarten registration right on schedule,” said superintendent Walt Griffin.
