Attendance zone revision proposed for two Pasco County middle schools



Attendance zone changes can prove messy affairs. Witness the parent outcry when faced with moving their children from Pasco's Seven Oaks Elementary to Denham Oaks Elementary, just a few months ago.

There's little of that pushback, though, in the move to redraw the boundaries between Bayonet Point and Chasco middle schools.

That's mostly because the map revision simply returns the schools to the lines they knew before Bayonet Point closed for a year of renovations. Some of its students were sent to Chasco during the project, and the School Board made that move official on its maps to make clear which Bayonet Point kids would attend Chasco vs. those who would go to Fivay High for classes.

With the project over, the board is set to undo its action. 

There's still an opportunity for families to dispute the proposal. It comes to the board for the first of two public hearings at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
