4 adjustments recommended to elementary school boundaries

November 13, 1996|By Andrea F. Siegel | Andrea F. Siegel,SUN STAFF

A community panel has recommended four adjustments to elementary school attendance boundaries in West County as part of its plan for dividing the student population between the existing MacArthur Middle and Meade Area Middle, which is to open in 1997.

The committee recommended:

Send children from the Seven Oaks and Spring Meadows communities, who attend Odenton Elementary, to Meade Heights Elementary. School officials say that would lead to crowding at Meade Heights between 2002 and 2006.

Shift children in the Harwood and Greenbriar neighborhoods from Jessup Elementary to Harman Elementary.

Move children in the northwest section of the Provinces development, who attend Harman Elementary, to Jessup Elementary. School officials say that move would lead to crowding at Jessup Elementary in the near future.

Move children in Bacontown, Laurel Highlands and part of Old Line Road from Maryland City Elementary to Brock Bridge Elementary.

The panel's recommendations are to be presented Nov. 20 to county school officials, who will consider them as they draw new school attendance areas next spring.
