The Rutherford County Board of Education will host a public hearing on Feb. 11 to gather valuable input from parents about a proposed rezoning affecting Oakland Middle School, Whitworth-Buchanan Middle School and Christiana Middle School.
The public hearing will be held at Whitworth-Buchanan Middle School on Tuesday, Feb. 11 beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The School Board has adopted a draft proposal for the rezoning but only for discussion purposes and to collect feedback from parents. School Board members encourage members of the public to attend the public hearing and to share any comments, questions or concerns about the proposed plan.
A map of the draft proposal is available HERE. Parents with questions about specific addresses should contact enrollment planner Shane Morgan at 615-893-5812.
Rezoning the three middle schools has become necessary because of overcrowding at Oakland Middle School. The school's optimum enrollment size is 850-1,000 students. However, the school's current enrollment is more than 1,100.
