- Elementary students will be rezoned effective the 2015-2016 school year. The new zoning boundaries can been seen in this map (PDF – 2.4 MB).
- Middle and high school students will continue to attend their current schools for the 2015-2016 school year, however, new attendance zones for these grade levels will be drawn and take effect for the 2016-2017 school year.
- The new elementary attendance zones include an attendance zone for the new CrestView Elementary School (K-5).
- The attendance zones for Cheatham Park Elementary and Westside Elementary will be combined into a grade centered zone. All grade K-2 students in this zone will attend Westside Elementary. All grade 3-5 students in this zone will attend Cheatham Park Elementary.
After some tweaking by the Department Of Justice, Out-of-Zone-Requests for all Robertson County Schools will be accepted by the district through June 30 2015.
A copy of the request form is attached and can be copied, filled out, and turned in to the Central Office at 2121 Woodland St., in Springfield. Notification of approval or denial for each request will be sent to parents or legal guardians between July 10 and August 1, 2015.
Supervisor of Student Services, Donna Dorris said that the application process is no different than in previous years, but that in order to satisfy the district’s recent settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice, verification of information submitted on the application will be closely examined for accuracy and guideline compliance.
