The Fairfax County School Board has voted to approve adjustments to school attendance areas in an effort to alleviate overcrowding at Fairfax High School and Lanier Middle School.
The boundary changes will be phased in beginning in the 2014-15 school year, with an option for families to move their rising seventh grade students and rising ninth grade students to the newly-assigned schools in fall 2013, with transportation provided. Rising eighth grade students and rising eleventh and twelfth grade students would be allowed to remain at their current schools in fall 2014.
The Board also approved an amendment that reassigns the Penderbrook and Fairfax Farms areas of the Waples Mill Elementary School attendance area from Lanier Middle to Franklin Middle School starting with school year 2013-14, and from Fairfax High to Oakton High School starting with school year 2014-15, thereby eliminating a split feeder assignment for Waples Mill Elementary School.
Approximately 540 students from Fairfax High and 245 students from Lanier Middle will be reassigned by the school year 2017-18 in order to relieve overcrowding at those schools. Students who reside in the City of Fairfax are not impacted by the boundary changes.
