Students assigned to new Pasco schools


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.
