The Clarksville-Montgomery County School Board approved the zoning recommendation for Pisgah Elementary School, as well as a plan to balance attendance zones in three elementary schools in Zoning Region 2.
Using feedback from parents concerned about the impact on their children being moved in the adjustment between existing school zones, the recommendation was amended to allow 126 students to remain at their currently zoned school.
Approved Staff Recommendation:
Establish the Pisgah Elementary zone by rezoning:
Student Group One - 318 students from West Creek
Student Group Two - 244 students from Northeast
Student Group Three - 65 students from Hazelwood
627 total students
Pisgah will open at 74% capacity
Elementary capacity in Zoning Region Two is balanced by zoning:
Student Group Four - 307 students from Barkers Mill to Hazelwood
Student Group Five - 251 students from Hazelwood to Northeast
Student Group Six - 17 students from Barkers Mill to West Creek
525 students impacted
The 4th grade students in student groups four, five, and six will be granted an exception to remain at their current elementary school for the 2013/2014 school year. This could potentially impact 86 students.
This exception also will be extended to the currently enrolled younger siblings of these 4th grade students. This exception will remain in place until these students have completed their elementary education. This could potentially affect 40 students.
Parents have until April 30 to indicate whether they want their child to remain at their existing schools.
CMCSS school bus transportation only will be provided to the newly zoned school beginning with the opening of the 2013-2014 school year.
Special education students will be placed in programs according to their educational needs. Exceptions for special education students will be handled on a case by case basis.
No changes were made to middle and high school attendance zones.
