To make it easier for everyone to find, here's the handout from Tuesday's Wake County student assignment committee meeting showing the various sample zones.
The handout lists the maps, the schools that are in each zone and the enrollment projections for each zone. (Click here for color maps.) There are a couple of big caveats, such as how the enrollment numbers don't include magnet students, just where all the raw kids are projected to be.
But this doesn't mean that they're not including magnets for the new zones. School board member John Tedesco again said Tuesday that he expects many of the current magnets to remain so under the new zones.
Another big caveat that staff and Tedesco said Tuesday is that these maps are strictly samples for planning purposes. Still, Tedesco said they'd narrow down the four zone samples still under consideration and make adjustments to the one they they think best fits their plans.
If I had to guess now, some combo of the high school geographic map and school transnportation district map have the best chance of being adopted.
You can expect a lot of tweaking before all the zones are finally set.
Staff was asked to come back by the Aug. 31 committee meeting to come back with more info such as how many students would be displaced from their current schools in each zone sample and which nodes are in each zone.
Staff will also list how each school did in the state's ABCs of Public Education testing program.
You'll notice the handout includes the zip code zone map that was developed at the request of school board member Keith Sutton. Staff was told they don't have to do further work on that map.
I've also got all the data electronically. I'll post it online at some point if Wake doesn't do so soon.
