It's that time of year again, when the Pasco County School District redraws student attendance zone boundaries to accommodate yet another round of new schools.
Pasco has set up a system that lasts months and involves parents from the start, muting many potential criticisms by incorporating most of their concerns at the front end.
So as the School Board prepared to take up the zones today for Veterans Elementary in Wesley Chapel and Crews Lake Middle in Shady Hills, board members said they heard nothing from the public. No phone calls. No e-mails. No complaints.
Since attending a public meeting on the proposed zone, board member Allen Altman said, "I have not had a single call."
"If people don't like it, they call - immediately," board member Marge Whaley said. This time around, she said, "I haven't had a single boundary call, which tells me that things are pretty good."
IF YOU GO
The School Board meets at 9:30 a.m. today in Land O'Lakes. It will consider on first reading boundary proposals for Veterans Elementary and Crews Lake Middle. The final vote is set for Feb. 19.
