Proximity-based Student Assignment Plan

6 elementary kids raising hands with a hite backgroundThe School District of Lee County is developing a new proximity-based student assignment plan for elementary schools for the 2022-23 school year. Community and district stakeholders, in collaboration with Davis Demographics, used the latest GIS technology to organize elementary schools and students into new attendance boundaries. The goals of the new elementary school student assignment plan are to make strategic improvements on the current plan by creating attendance zones that are smaller, address issues of student isolation, maintain choice, improve transportation efficiency (bus ride/wait times), and build stronger community schools.
