Duval County School Board Considers Boundary Changes, New Specialty, Magnet Schools

Drastic changes could be coming to schools primarily in the Northwest districts in Jacksonville. Many schools would become specialties or magnets. A. Philip Randolph would become a vocational trade school, and Oak Hill Elementary an autistic center.

Vitti is asking for community input on school-zone boundary changes he’s proposing for the 2016-2017 school year. He says first PTAs and School Advisory Councils should be engaged. Then working groups would be formed with members including parents, students and staff. They would hold meetings. The groups would then relay their findings to Vitti, who would hold public hearings.
