After a rezoning plan to ease crowding at Mill Creek Elementary School by adding some of its students to neighboring Nolensville Elementary failed in the face of community opposition, the district has called for three special meetings to discuss rezoning in the Mill Creek area.
There will be a Special Called School Board Work Session to discuss rezoning proposals on Monday, April 1. This meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Professional Development Center.
A community meeting will be held at Nolensville High on Tuesday, April 2, at 6 p.m.
A rezoning proposal will be voted on at a Special Called School Board Meeting Tuesday, April 11. This meeting will also be held at 5:30 p.m. at the Professional Development Center. The building is located at 1761 West Main St. in Franklin.
All meetings are open to the public.
The initial plan, to move more than 200 children from the Silver Stream subdivision who attend Mill Creek to Nolensville Elementary, failed in a 6-6 School Board vote following a lengthy discussion. Silver Stream shares a property line with the school and includes a paved trail that allows students to walk and bike to school.
