Daviess Co. Board of Ed rezones elementary school boundaries

On Thursday, the Daviess County school board voted to rezone part of the county, putting some students in different schools for the 2017-2018 school year.

The issue is overcrowding. School officials say five Daviess County elementary schools are more than 90 percent full.  

The rezoning may ease overcrowding by moving some students to schools with more room.  

For example, 59 current Highland Elementary students would attend Country Heights Elementary starting in the fall of 2017.

Some families would be grandfathered in for two years, like current Highland Elementary School fourth and fifth graders and their siblings.

Several people who spoke to the board were concerned about the rezoning boundary along Spring Hurst Lane and how it could divide a neighborhood.

For more information on the plan and for more details you can go to the Daviess County School's website. The links to the plan are below:
