Pasco residents will have the opportunity to speak directly to the Pasco School Board ahead of the board's decision on new elementary school boundaries.
The district will have a public hearing on the proposed boundary for its newest elementary school and its neighboring schools at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 5 at the district's offices at 1215 W. Lewis St.
Attendees will have up to two minutes to comment on the three boundary proposals released in the last two weeks and give related opinions.
Rosalind Franklin STEM Elementary School will have a focused science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, curriculum. It is being built at Road 52 and Powerline Road in west Pasco.
The school's opening will affect boundaries for five other elementary schools in west Pasco: Mark Twain, James McGee, Edwin Markham, Maya Angelou and Ruth Livingston.
Board members are expected to review and possibly set the new school boundaries at their regular meeting on Feb. 11.
