You child may be moving next year — to a new school, that is.
At Thursday's Big Spring Independent School District board of trustees meeting, officials unveiled new maps detailing where students in grades kindergarten through 5 will attend school starting with the 2012-2013 school year.
The new attendance zones will become a necessity next year when the district opens four new elementary campuses, shuts down Bauer Elementary and converts Kentwood Elementary to a pre-kindergarten campus.
Local public school officials are looking at a standardized dress code as one way to help improve the learning environment at Big Spring secondary campuses.
Big Spring Independent School District officials trustees vigorously debated the idea during their monthly meeting at the high school board room Thursday night.
Proponents of a standardized dress code said the plan, which would effect students in grades 6 through 12, would help build a better learning environment at the junior high and high school.
