In an effort to provide equitable enrollment and programming within the Gahanna-Jefferson schools, the school board on Jan. 10 approved a redistricting plan for its middle schools.
Effective with the 2013-14 school year, middle school students living in Blacklick, Eastpoint apartments, Rosebrook apartments, Waterford Park, Stonehill, Belltown apartments and on East Broad Street will attend Middle School South.
Middle school students living in the Rocky Fork area will be assigned to Middle School West.
Under the plan, elementary students living in Underwood Farms, Polo Club, Groves Drive and on Johnstown Road from Morse Road to Hamilton Road will attend High Point Elementary.
Some students currently being provided special education services at Middle School South, Middle School West, Royal Manor and Jefferson will be assigned equitable programming at a building determined by the type of special needs services provided.
