FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The Forsyth County School Board released the first draft of the proposed 2014-15 attendance lines and 2014-15 redistricting.

The county school district is soliciting online input on the matter until Friday, Sept. 27. (

This fall, Forsyth County Schools is redistricting for the 2014-15 school year to relieve overcrowding and populate existing schools.

The two areas of concentration include elementary school redistricting for Big Creek Elementary School, Brookwood ES, Daves Creek, Haw Creek ES, Johns Creek ES, Midway ES, Settles Bridge ES, Sharon ES and Shiloh Point ES and middle school redistricting for Lakeside MS, South Forsyth MS and Riverwatch MS.

There is no intent to adjust 2014-15 high school attendance lines, however lines will be reviewed and considered based on elementary and middle school changes.

Rising fifth- and eighth-grade students have the option to complete an out-of-district request in December to stay at their current school for next school year, but parents will have to provide transportation.

This does not extend to siblings that are in lower grades.
