Fayette County Public Schools has posted the final redistricting maps for elementary, middle and high schools.
The district spent more than a year redrawing attendance zones in advance of two new elementary schools opening in 2016 and a new high school at 2000 Winchester Road opening in 2017. The school board approved the new boundaries June 3.
One new elementary school will be at Georgetown and Spurr roads; the other is on Passage Mound Way east of Interstate 75.
The new elementary school attendance boundaries will be implemented during the 2016-17 school year, and the changes at the middle and high school level will take effect in fall 2017.
Of almost 40,000 students in the district, 5,108 will change schools because of the redistricting, school officials have said.
Of those, 1,688 will move to one of the new schools.

The latest maps are similar to a previous version with the exception of three changes:
■ The Olde Bridge neighborhood off Harrodsburg and Bowman Mill roads will go from Garden Springs Elementary School to Rosa Parks Elementary with the rest of the Palomar area.
■ Copperfield, Clemens Heights and Wyndham Downs will stay at Beaumont Middle School instead of moving to Jessie Clark Middle School.
■ All of the students in the Picadome Elementary School district who live on the northwest side of Harrodsburg Road will go to Jessie Clark Middle School. A redistricting committee had proposed that area go to Beaumont Middle School.
The school board voted not to allow students who have been reassigned to existing schools to make the switch this year.
"We simply cannot implement this type of a change so close to the first day of school on August 12, 2015," district officials said in a statement released this month.
In the next few months, district officials will develop early entry procedures for students who want to make the switch in fall 2016 in advance of the following year's middle and high school changes.
The school board adopted the redistricting committee's recommendation to allow students entering grades 5, 8, 11 and 12 to stay in their current schools. But the district will not provide transportation for those students. Brothers and sisters of such students will be allowed to remain in their existing schools only as long as the older siblings are still there.
Notices will be sent to families of students who will be affected by the changes.
