White said the district considers transfer requests on a case-by-case basis, and available space would be the primary factor.

“We have to look at class sizes and whether we can accommodate students at a school,” he said.

White said he hopes to accommodate most families' requests.

Another concern was whether switching schools would change what the students are learning.

Parent Katrina Shaklee said this is the second time her family has gone through moving schools, and the first experience showed that lesson plans from school to school didn't exactly match.

Elementary Director Diana Jones assured Shaklee that even though the methods might be different between classrooms, the teachers are adhering to the same curriculum and standards.

Though there was much discussion about the logistics of redistricting, little was said about which plan parents preferred.



What's next

Another meeting set

Parents will have another chance to express concerns at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Coffee Creek Baptist Church, 1650 Coffee Creek Road. The meeting will follow the same style as Thursday's and run until 8 p.m.
