In a move questioned by the president of the county Board of Education, Superintendent Carol S. Parham recommended yesterday that no changes be made in school boundaries for the next academic year. She made her recommendation despite crowded corridors in some schools and empty classrooms in others, but her deputies said big changes could be down the road. It isn't the right year to be moving students, because the staff is studying whether there is a need for a 13th high school or whether to solve space concerns with a wider-reaching redistricting plan, said Thomas W. Rhoades, director of program planning for the school system.
