Maps showing the zoning changes for ACS elementary school boundaries

The Auburn City Schools Board of Education approved elementary school boundary changes at its meeting this week.

The changes have been available for the public to review online since November, and ACS administration also hosted two public forums to allow residents to discuss the district realignment plan.

After receiving feedback, one small change was made to the initial rezoning plan that affects only about 20 students living on White Street, allowing them to continue to attend Cary Woods Elementary.

The new zones will be in effect for the 2018-19 school year, and the new elementary school, Creekside Elementary, will open on Richland Road this upcoming school year as well.

"Several issues have caused a need for rezoning — the growth as well as opening an additional school, which needs to be considered in the zoning," said ACS Superintendent Karen DeLano.

Board of Education member Bill Hutto said school staff would be happy to assist anyone with questions about the changes.

"It can be a difficult process, but I'm pretty comfortable with the way we've gone about it," he said. "I appreciate those who may have to make some changes, but I'm sure our staff would be very capable to advise (them)."

Also at this week's meeting, the board approved a donor agreement that gifts about $1 million to ACS for a student scholarship trust fund. The donation came from the estate of Gladys Louise Thomas.

The board also approved a bid from Gordy Construction Company in Fortson, Georgia, for a sanitary sewer and lift station for the new Creekside Elementary School at $540,000.

Amazing post shared. Board of Education just approved the new elementary school zone in their meeting. So I really like the board members to approve statement for a school. Because school is the one and only place which teaches us educates along with knowledge of everything and essay writing companies share unique knowledge. I hope others will like this article too.
