FAQ’s Regarding the HCSD 10 Year Plan

Question: If ESPLOST VI and the Bond measures pass, and new elementary schools are constructed, will the consolidation of schools impact current attendance zones which determine where my child attends middle or high school?

Answer: No. At this time the district has no plans to redraw district lines. As an example: If White Sulphur and Riverbend Elementary Schools were to merge into one newly constructed facility, students from White Sulphur would still attend East Hall Middle and High Schools, and Riverbend students would continue to track through the North Hall Cluster.

“A message from Superintendent Will Schofield addressing the March referendum and questions about student attendance zones. It is the district’s intent to provide useful information so that you can vote with your conscience on March 24, 2020”
