The district is updating its timeline for developing a comprehensive school rezoning plan, but new attendance zones will still be adopted before the end of this calendar year and take effect in the 2024-25 school year.
Under the new timeline, a revised rezoning proposal that reflects enrollment figures for the current school year will be shared with the School Board and the public in October. The School Board will hold what’s called a first reading of the new rezoning plan on October 17 at 6 p.m., a public hearing on November 14 (time TBD) and a final vote on December 5th at 6 p.m.
The two community input sessions on rezoning postponed due to Hurricane Idalia have also been rescheduled to October 2 at 5:30 p.m. (Kanapaha Middle School) and October 12 at 5:30 p.m. (Santa Fe High School.)
The Rezoning Community Input Session to be held at Newberry High School is still scheduled for Thursday (October 5th) at 5:30 pm in the NHS Auditorium.
The updated timeline, including all community input sessions, is posted on the district’s rezoning website at www.sbac.edu/rezoning . Revised proposed maps and other information will also be posted on that site as soon as they’re available.
