The first community meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Zoom, and the second meeting will in person on November 4 at the District Office (620 E. University Avenue). You will also be able to live stream both meetings online here.
“The Zoom coordinates for the online input session are available on the district’s Facilities/Rezoning page at https://fl02219191.schoolwires.net/Page/26740,” according to an ACPS press release. “The page includes an interactive map that shows the five draft plans and allows residents to type in their address to see how it would be affected. More information about rezoning, including details about the impact of each plan on surrounding schools, is also available on that page.”
