Hillsborough Schools 

Superintendent proposes a more ‘sensitive’ school boundary plan.

Tampa Bay Times

By Marlene Sokol


Hillsborough County Superintendent Addison Davis is offering a new proposal for changing school attendance boundaries aimed at allaying many concerns raised by the public in recent weeks.


Under his plan, released during a school board meeting Thursday, boundary changes and resulting school reassignments would not go into effect until August 2024, giving families more time to prepare. The district previously envisioned rolling out the changes this fall.


Davis also proposed laying out specific plans ahead of time for schools that would be closed and repurposed for other uses due to the changes. And he said attendance boundaries for Plant High and Coleman Middle School would not be altered — a significant change from a consultant’s recommendation, and one that addresses major opposition from parents at both schools.
