Overcrowding and diversity pose challenges for Fayette schools committee redrawing attendance zones

A committee redrawing Fayette County's public school attendance zones faces dilemmas involving school overcrowding and diversity. The committee is meeting publicly about twice monthly through at least December. The guiding principles approved by the school board for the committee include achieving a socioeconomic balance at schools and making sure that students go to schools near their homes. Firm decisions about new school attendance zones aren't expected until early 2015.
