N. Fulton school redistricting gets final OK.

By Nancy Badertscher

The Fulton County School Board gave final approval Tuesday night to new school attendance zones opposed by some Roswell parents and the city's mayor.

The change in school boundaries was triggered by the school system's plans to open a new school on Bethany Bend near the Forsyth County line in August 2012.

Roswell Mayor Jere Wood argued officials need to strengthen the connection between towns and schools, not weaken them by forcing some students who live in the city to transfer to other schools.

Parents also complained that the plan, which affects students at Alpharetta, Milton and Roswell high schools, unnecessarily moved too many students and will force some to travel already congested roads in north Fulton.

What is the White Columns community going to do now that they are headed to the new school?

People: This is over. Move on. Last time I checked we have bigger things to deal with.

They will help make the new school just as wonderful, if not more wonderful, than their "old" one.
