The rezoning approval will have elementary students going to school within walking distance of their home. This is all part of the districts' $265M capital improvement plan which will help improve schools in the areas and consolidate as well as build new ones.
Superintendent Kelly Rodgers says they have changed from a satellite zoning plan to a community plan.
"Tried to do a one to one and a half mile radius bringing the children closer within one or one and half miles of their elementary school in some cases the idea was also to make it a walk-able situation," says Rodgers.
The reconfigured school boundary lines will go into effect in the 2015-2016 school year.
