|SUBJECT: ||School Attendance Boundaries 2016-2017 - First Reading|
The establishment and adoption of school attendance boundaries is authorized by Section 1001.42, Florida Statues. In addition, the Administrative Procedures Act requires that the District publish a Notice of Intent to Adopt a Rule twenty-one days prior to the public hearing.
The opening of Elementary School “W” for the 2016-2017 school year requires the adjustment of the school attendance boundaries. The process utilized in determining proposed boundaries involved the establishment of a boundary committee made up of principals and parents from all of the schools that are potentially impacted. This committee was set up to review boundary scenarios and applicable data and to hear alternative proposals from the community. Option 8, from the multiple scenarios reviewed, was ultimately agreed upon by the committee as the one to recommend to the Board. Option 8a was developed to reflect the proposal made to the Board by the Arbor Woods community on November 3, 2015.
The Public Notice of Intent was advertised in the Tampa Tribune on November 1, 2015, as required by the Administrative Procedures Act. The Public Notice, along with color maps which define the boundaries. are attached for review.
The staff respectfully recommends School Board approval of the first reading of the 2016-2017 School Attendance Boundaries.
