High School Redistricting Affects Milton Residents

Round 2 of the redistricting process by the Fulton County Board of Education (FCBOE) regarding altering current attendance zones began on March 16, 2011. The Board released three proposed maps, which modify the boundaries for middle schools and high schools north of the Chattahoochee River. All of our Milton community is affected by these proposals. Please submit your comments to the FCBOE. Even if you attended the meeting(s) or provided commentary last time, every voice makes a difference. These maps will continue to be modified based on citizen input which needs to include your opinions.

Use this
link to view the three proposed maps. Remember, these are preliminary and will continue to be modified.

In addition, you can submit comments regarding any of the modifications on the FCBOE website until 8:00 am on Monday, March 21, 2011. The comment button can be found on the bottom corner of the main redistricting website page or use this

Round 3 will begin on April 13, 2011 with another community meeting at Alpharetta High School. At that meeting, the Board will present two new maps which will reflect concerns and comments submitted by the community during Round 2.
