GAINESVILLE ‒ Alachua County Public Schools is updating its timeline for developing a comprehensive school rezoning plan. Under the new timeline, a revised rezoning proposal that reflects enrollment figures for the current school year will be shared with the School Board and the public in October.

In keeping with a state-mandated timeline for adopting any new policy, including new attendance zones, the Board will hold a first reading of the new rezoning plan on Oct. 17, a public hearing on Nov. 14 and a final vote on Dec. 5.

New attendance zones will still be adopted before the end of this calendar year and take effect for the 2024-25 school year.

The two community input sessions on rezoning postponed due to Hurricane Idalia have also been rescheduled to Oct. 2 at 5:30 p.m. at Kanapaha Middle School and Oct. 12 at 5:30 p.m. at Santa Fe High School.

The updated timeline, including community input sessions, is posted on the district’s rezoning website at www.sbac.edu/rezoning. New proposed maps and other information will also be posted on that site as soon as they’re available.
