Tonight, Wilson County Schools Director, Dr. Donna Wright, met with parents at Elzie Patton Elementary school to unveil the proposed re-zoning maps for next school year.
Here’s a broad overview of what the rezoning would look like:
- 537 students who currently attend Stoner Creek Elementary will be rezoned to the new Springdale Elementary school, which opens next August.
- 200 students who currently attend Elzie Patton Elementary will be rezoned to Stoner Creek Elementary. This will greatly reduce the overcrowding at Elzie Patton and allow the district to remove 5 portables, which now house 10 classrooms.
- Today, approximately 745 students attend both Elzie Patton and Stoner Creek.
- If approved by the Wilson Co. school board, the student population at each school will be as follows:
Elzie Patton- 544
Stoner Creek- 407
No students at any other Wilson County schools will be impacted by the proposed plan. The rezoning plan submitted tonight is a proposal, and will have to be approved by the school board in order to become final.
