2013 rezoning of elementary schools and SKMS
I am curious when the decision will be made regarding possible rezoning of elementary and SKMS schools?
Will this happen for the 2013-2014 school year? What are the proposed rezoning changes?

Thank you.

RE:2013 rezoning of elementary schools and SKMS
A presentation with information about the possible redirection of 4th grade students to Skyline Middle School
is available on the division website or from the link below. Parents can check this presentation to see if they may be
impacted by the changes. http://www.harrisonburg.k12.va.us/HarrisonburgCitySchools/media/images/Documents/Community/Redirection11612.pdf.

A public hearing is scheduled for the January 15 school board meeting. Also, an open house for families that may be
impacted by the changes will be held at Skyline Middle School. Parents will be notified of the date of the open house.

The decision will be made in February or March for the 2013-2014 school year.
