2015-16 Proposed Changes for the Hillsboro Cluster

Status Update

On June 10 the School Board approved a plan to alleviate crowding in the Hillsboro Cluster. Over the past few months, the district has gathered significant community input on the proposed Hillsboro cluster zoning changes.

About the Project

Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools targeted a comprehensive planning process to alleviate overcrowding in the Hillsboro Cluster. Currently, Julia Green and Percy Priest range from 112% to 117% capacity use and are projected to be 147% to 158% use by 2017-18.

Metro Council approved capital funding in June 2013 to help accommodate the district's enrollment growth. The capital budget included funding to renovate and re-open the historic Waverly-Belmont school in the Hillsboro Cluster.  Waverly-Belmont will open in the 2015 -2016 school year. 

The District has prepared recommendations for configuring attendance boundaries for Waverly-Belmont.  The recommendations are designed to alleviate overcrowding without having negative impacts to student diversity.  MNPS Administration conducted a public meetings to receive public input prior to making formal recommendations to the Board of Education.

If you have questions about this proposal or want to know the school zone for your address based on the current draft, please email student.assignment@mnps.org
