Proposed Attendance Zone Modification For Eagle Valley Middle School

Carson City is seeing a lot of new housing developments, and with that growth comes more kids in schools.

So now, the Carson City School District is working to make room for everyone.

They're looking to rezone the district to adjust where students will go to middle school, it would be based on where they live.

This change could take affect as early as the next school year.

"Our goal is to really have three of our elementary schools funnel their promoting 5th graders to one middle school and the other three will promote to the other," said District Superintendent Richard Stokes.

The one school that will be affected in this rezoning change will be Fremont Elementary.

Stokes' hope is that all promoting 5th graders will go to Eagle Valley Middle School instead of Carson Middle.

Right now Eagle Valley Middle School has around 650 students, where as Carson Middle has over 1,200 students.

"The added growth in the community is vibrant, it brings new people to town. It causes us to modify which is never a bad thing, and we're looking forward to the opportunity," says Stokes.

If you have any concerns, the district hopes parents will come to Fremont Elementary on February 27th at 5:30, to express their concerns.
