How do we know if we are affected? I entered my address information into the address finder and it still shows Abbotts as my base school. Does this mean my kids will not be affected by this change? Thanks.

Heidi, someone from student assignment will reach out to you to confirm that you aren't being affected by this proposal.

I guess my comment is in the wrong field as well bc mine should most likely be under the Abbotts to durant as well.

We are proposed to have to change our sons school to Durant Rd next year. This is unacceptable really. Why does our son have to change? Change the newest kids who have enrolled not ours who has barely had any stability since Covid started.

Hi Steven, we live on Falls River Avenue and are in the same situation with our current first grader. Would you mind moving your comment under the Abbotts Creek/Durant forum? I know this forum is confusing. I just don't want your feedback to get lost as this one is related to Abbotts Creek/Brassfield. Thanks for your feedback. Here is the link for the one related to Abbotts/Durant move https://wcpss.granicusideas.com/discussions/draft-1-2022-23-student-enrollment-proposal/topics/proposed-assignment-changes-from-abbotts-creek-elementary-to-durant-road-elementary

Thanks for this! Please move the comment over to the discussion on Abbotts Creek and Durant so it can be seen. This one is for the move from Abbotts to Brassfield. You have to scroll a bit farther to find the one we need to comment on. Thanks!

I'm not sure if my daughter who attends Kindergarten is affected. I've checked the address locator a few times and it keep giving me different answers.

My daughter was placed on the hold list last year due to the cap situation with no hope to be accepted. At that point we had accepted our faith that she would have to attend the overflow school in hopes that she could get a spot at Aces.

But to our surprise she got a spot. The whole process of waiting and reach out and getting feedback caused much stress and now she may have to move again. She loves the school and her teacher and she is doing extremely well. Moving schools would be an issue and would caused more stress.
