Tax increase: The public hearing on the proposed 5-cent property tax increase starts at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday July 18 in Conference Room C of district offices, 701 E. Main St. The school board will vote immediately afterward on the tax, which would fund the district’s Comprehensive 10-Point Safety Investment Plan.
Redistricting: Our newest elementary school, at 4801 Athens Boonesboro Rd., will open in the fall of 2019. The board's School Zoning Committee is working out the details this summer, and its meetings are open to the public. Visit fcps.net/zones for updates.
