COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A new proposal laid out before the Muscogee County School Board could mean your child may be reassigned to a different school in the near future.

The idea for rezoning came up during the board's latest retreat in early February. MCSD's central regional chief, James Wilson, presented the idea for the board to consider; a proposal superintendent David Lewis is calling "spot rezoning."

At this point in the discussion, neither the board nor the district has released any documents outlining the details of this proposal, which could provide better insight on how many students or which schools may be affected if the board ultimately approves this measure.

In the near future, the board will host public forums so that district leaders can explain the proposal to parents and any concerned citizens, at which point the community will respond, asking questions and participating in the discussion.

Ultimately, the board will have to vote and approve any rezoning, and the board has not yet laid out a timeline for a vote on the proposal.
