12-16-2014 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #46


Title
Eliminate Edgewood Jr.Sr. High School and West Shore Jr./Sr. High School Boundaries

Discussion
A proposal to eliminate the boundaries for Edgewood and West Shore Jr./Sr. High Schools has been brought forth due to the elimination of corridor transportation for our students. Boundaries that currently divide Brevard County for the purposes of applying to these two choice schoos are no longer needed. Parents may wish to exercise their parental choice to apply to a school that may be closer to their place of employment rather than their home. By eliminating this boundary, parents who are responsible for transporting their children would be able to make a decision based on their family needs.

Recommendation
Approve the elimination of boundaries for Edgewood Jr./Sr. High School and West Shore Jr./Sr. High School.
