Discussion

At the School Board Workshop on October 24, 2023, one potential attendance boundary change was presented to the Board for review and discussion. The reason for the proposed change is to adjust the boundaries to coincide with new subdivision lines.

This boundary change would be effective for the 2024-2025 school year. No special considerations are proposed at this time.

MILA Elementary School to Lewis Carroll Elementary School

The Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning and School Concurrency provides the BPS Facilities planning team a review of residential developments before they are approved by the County or various municipalities. In December, 2022, a review of a proposed 90 home subdivision (Falling Leaf) on Merritt Island in Brevard County, District 2, estimated 10 elementary school students would be generated from the new homes. The existing boundary line between MILA and Lewis Carroll Elementary is a line through the potential subdivision and is not workable as a boundary line. The proposed attendance boundary change would move the portion of the subdivision in the MILA Elementary School attendance boundary to the Lewis Carroll Elementary School boundary. The current and projected enrollment shows that either school could accommodate the projected number of students; however, Lewis Carroll Elementary is located closer to the proposed development, which leads it to be the logical choice for the students from this development. The boundary change would not affect any students currently attending MILA Elementary School. 

The next step in the process is community engagement. The Attendance Boundary Change webpage is active and can be accessed through the "About Us" section of the District's website. No students are affected by this proposed change.

The School Board will consider action in December to advertise for the public hearing in January, 2024.

 

Recommendation

Approve advertising for the public hearing (Action December 12, 2023).

Approve the attendance boundary change proposal for School Year 2024-2025 (Public Hearing/Action January 23, 2024).
