School boundaries top district's agenda

TAMPA — Hillsborough parents, the wait is almost over. The district will soon start talking about sweeping changes to high school attendance boundaries in the northern and eastern county.

School officials plan to meet with parents about the proposed boundaries for Strawberry Crest High in the Dover area at 7 p.m. Monday in the Tomlin Middle School auditorium. It could affect students at Plant City, Durant and Armwood high schools.

A similar session for Steinbrenner High School in Lutz is scheduled for 7 p.m. Jan. 28 in the Sickles High auditorium. School officials have been looking at moving students from Sickles, Gaither, Alonso, Freedom and possibly Chamberlain high schools.

School officials expect to post online maps of the proposed boundaries by Thursday afternoon. They will finalize the proposals after the community meetings. The School Board would have to approve them, most likely at the Feb. 10 meeting.

The district's Web site,, features maps of the proposed boundary changes for several elementary schools and a middle school in eastern county, where several schools open in August.
