Pasco — Proposed boundary changes affecting five west Pasco elementary schools will be unveiled at meetings beginning Wednesday.
The Pasco School Board is scheduled to discuss the proposed boundary changes during a study session Tuesday.
Parents are invited to attend any meeting, though the same information will be provided at each.
The school district is preparing to open its 13th elementary school at Road 52 and Powerline Road. Named after British biophysicist Rosalind Franklin, it will have a science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, curriculum.
The new school is one of three being built by the district through 2015 and paid for by a $46.8 million bond approved a year ago.
The district will offer families the option to transfer their student to the new school even if they don't live within its boundaries.
The meetings are scheduled for the following times and schools:
-- 6 p.m. Wednesday at Edwin Markham Elementary School.
-- 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at McGee Elementary School.
-- 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Mark Twain Elementary School.
-- 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Ruth Livingston Elementary School.
-- 6 p.m. Jan. 21 at Maya Angelou Elementary School.
