550 Fairbanks students to shift schools

Posted: Monday, November 01, 2010

FAIRBANKS - About 550 children in the Fairbanks North Star Borough will change schools next year under final boundary changes announced by the borough school district.

The changes update a plan announced in April and modified after public comment.

The boundary shift is designed to relieve overcrowding in North Pole schools.

Planners tell the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner they wanted to create space in schools to allow future growth, keep neighborhoods together, minimize bus ride times and make sure the district qualifies for state funding for a new elementary school.

The final plan requires about 100 fewer students to change schools.
