Boundary Adjustment Proposal Greenfield and Cloverdale Elementary Schools

posted Apr 13, 2015, 11:29 AM by bcps web   [ updated Apr 13, 2015, 11:29 AM ]

Proposal intent:
This proposal addresses logistical issues for a possible bus route. The bus route would start in Roanoke County and enter into Botetourt County. A total of eleven houses would be adjusted to the Cloverdale Elementary School attendance zone. There are no current elementary students within this area, however, there is one student registered for kindergarten next year.

Please see attached for more information.

Contact Dr. Brian Austin, Director of Administration and Business Operations, by phone 540-473-8263 or email, baustin@bcps.k12.va.us with questions.
