Move to relieve crowding in Boca elementaries up for final vote

The school district’s plan to relieve crowding at Calusa Elementary in Boca Raton is up for a second and final school board vote Wednesday at 5 p.m. at district headquarters, 3300 Forest Hill Boulevard.

To recap:

After months of meetings and a last minute tweak from board members, it looks like crowding at the district’s most crowded school will be dispelled by shuffling more than 300 students at six elementaries in the region. Board members did acquiesce to the Casa Bella neighborhood’s concerns about being moved out of Calusa. That plan is now up for final approval.

Boundary changes up for board approval.

In other boundary news

The board will have a workshop before the meeting to discuss other upcoming boundary changes that will not be voted upon until March.

Those proposals include alterations to the boundaries for Forest Hill High and nearby Conniston Middle in West Palm Beach, and a shift in middle school  boundaries in the new community of Westlake involving students who would move into the community once it is built. The shift sends the students to Osceola Creek Middle rather than Western Pines Middle.
