A RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE FULTON COUNTY
SCHOOL BOARD TO RECOGNIZE COMMUNITIES WHEN
DRAWING ATTENDANCE ZONES FOR SCHOOLS
WHEREAS, the citizens of Roswell share a unique history and sense of place; and
WHEREAS, many youth in the City of Roswell have grown up participating in programs of the City’s Recreation and Parks Department; and
WHEREAS, this participation and participation of youth and adults in other City activities brings the citizens of Roswell, young and old, together as a community; and
WHEREAS, the citizens of Roswell often identify themselves with pride as being part of the “Roswell Community”; and
WHEREAS, the Fulton County School Board has set forth procedures that base school attendance zones primarily on geographic proximity to schools while taking into account the instructional capacity of the school and projected enrollment; and
WHEREAS, the Fulton County School Board uses neighborhoods as the geographical units for assignment to certain schools; and
WHEREAS, neighborhoods are defined by policy as being based on natural geographic barriers, identifiable residential subdivisions or apartment complexes, established homeowners’ associations and shared amenities; and
WHEREAS, such definition does not necessarily reflect City boundaries or the unique community that is Roswell; and
WHEREAS, the Mayor and City Council believe that school attendance zones should reflect the communities which they serve:
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Mayor and the Council of the City of Roswell request that the Fulton County School Board consider City boundary lines and the unique community traits of the City of Roswell when drawing attendance zones for the schools within North Fulton County.
The above resolution was read and approved by the Mayor and Council of the City of Roswell, Georgia on the day of , 2011.
