Dr. Jochen also said she totally understands the concerns of parents who have been affected by any or all of four zoning changes in the last ten years.
At the board’s next meeting March 17th, action is expected on the parameters a committee can consider in developing new elementary attendance zones.
Proposals will be presented in August and final action is expected in October. It’s the fourth time in ten years CSISD school boundaries have changed.
