Wake County's high school base assignment map gives an idea of the reworking that will be done to create community zones.
One of the mandates for the new zones from the student assignment committee is that they have contiguous boundaries. This means no more spot nodes and no more satellite diversity nodes.
To give an idea how it would look at the high school level required some tweaking by staff.

For the sample high school zone map presented at last week's meeting, staff eliminated the non-contiguous nodes. Laura Evans, senior director for growth and planning, said the decisions they made in the map for assigning the non-contiguous nodes to specific schools were strictly for sample purposes.
