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.
