Students assigned to new Pasco schools

LAND O'LAKES

Attendance areas set for new schools

Pasco County's two newest schools — Anclote High and Watergrass Elementary — now officially have students assigned to them.

The School Board gave preliminary approval Tuesday to attendance zones for the two schools that will open in the fall.

Anclote High in Holiday will take about 700 teens from Mitchell High and 300 from Gulf High. Watergrass Elementary in Wesley Chapel will get about half of Wesley Chapel Elementary's 1,000 students, bringing that school down to its capacity for the first time in years.

No one from the community came to comment. The board praised the planning staff.

"I don't mean to ruin the moment, but …," planning director Chris Williams responded. "As you may or may not be aware, we will be reviewing the (high school) EEE boundary (in Hudson). And with that, we will be looking at every middle and high school on the west side." That process is to begin next month.

    President Donald Trump's ban on travelers from six majority-Muslim countries is set to be replaced as soon as this weekend with more targeted restrictions on visits to the United States that would vary by country, officials familiar with the plans said Friday. The new restrictions, aimed at preventing security threats from entering the United States, could go into effect Sunday after the conclusion of a 90-day policy review undertaken as part of the administration's original travel ban. Though the restrictions would differ for each country, people living in the targeted nations could be prevented from traveling to the United States or could face increased scrutiny as they seek to obtain a visa.

    Business

    The University of Florida football program is valued in a new study at $682 million, making it the most valuable university team in the state but still worth far less than several college programs topping $1 billion. Four years ago, UF's program was valued at just under $600 million.
