Dan Drake is making it very easy to build your own school zone. He has provided three maps, one for north, one for southwest and one for southeast. Be warned, these are large files and if you have an older computer they take a while to load. Each map is has the number of elementary, middle and high school students who attend their HOME schools labeled by neighborhood and/or apartment complex. The first number is elementary, the middle number is middle, and the last number is high school.
You can print the area you are interested in and draw your own set of lines. I recommend that you look at this chart to get a sense of enrollment numbers that the consultants have set as goals.
Remember that if we are going to make any progress in capturing additional state funds and having a more manageable facility load, there has to be school closures and redistricting. That means that any plan you put forward impacts children, even if not your children. Heady stuff, I think.
