Three new K-8 (kindergarten through 8th grade) school projects are underway in Orange County and they’ll trigger student rezoning starting now to start in the 2017-18 school year. Three community meetings are scheduled for you to come hear about and ask questions of staff regarding the proposed changes.

The school board will hear public input at its formal Rule Development workshop on Tuesday, October 20 at 4:30 p.m. At that meeting, the proposed options will be presented and the school board may determine to advertise one or more options for a public hearing. The earliest date for a public hearing and a final vote is Tuesday, December 8, 2015 at 5:30 p.m.

All meetings will be held at School Board headquarters located at 445 West Amelia Street, Orlando.
