A contentious and controversial yearlong school redistricting process in Fayette County is now finished, officials said. The proposed final maps for elementary, middle and high school attendance zones will be presented to the public Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. in Norsworthy Auditorium at the district office, 701 East Main Street.
Alan Stein, chairman of the redistricting committee, said the public will be able to speak and ask questions during the meeting.
The committee will not revisit any of its decisions, Stein said. "However, the members of the Fayette County Board of Education will be in the audience that evening to hear all of the public comments, because the decision will now rest with them," Stein said.
"It is important for everyone to understand that the school board will have the final authority to approve the new school attendance boundaries, and they may choose to make changes to our proposal."
The committee made slight adjustments this week to the boundaries of Beaumont Middle, Leestown Middle, Winburn Middle, Bryan Station High, Henry Clay High, Lafayette High and the planned high school on Winchester Road, which will open in the fall of 2017.
