Transportation zones a key topic at BOE work session today
Panel to explore expansion of Sallie Z. bus range, ways to better utilize school's size
Sallie Zetterower Elementary School science and social studies teacher David Brown, top, discusses Civil Rights with fifth graders Wednesday. While the school's enrollment is expected to increase after re-districting plans are adopted and implemented, classroom sizes will stay the same according to principal Todd Williford.
A key point of discussion in a Board of Education work session will be the change of school transportation zones, according to Hayley Greene, spokesperson for Bulloch County schools. As part of an annual system-wide meeting tonight at Sallie Zetterower Elementary, members of the board and school councils will weigh options to rearrange transportation zones in an attempt to balance distribution of students in four of the county’s elementary schools – Brooklet Elementary, Langston Chapel Elementary, Mill Creek Elementary and Sallie Zetterower. The zoning changes, which affect still-undetermined locations, will require bus-riding students to relocate to Sallie Zetterower, but allow each affected school to operate closer to an ideal capacity, said Greene.
