In recent days, the Summerhill community has been abuzz with the Atlanta Public Schools’ decision to move the neighborhood from Parkside Elementary School’s attendance zone to that of D.H. Stanton in Peoplestown.
The attendance zones are still tentative and the APS Board of Education, which voted last week to close seven schools, must approve the most recent maps, district spokesman Keith Bromery told East Atlanta Patch.
Bromery e-mailed a statement explaining the district’s reasoning behind rezoning Summerhill to D.H Stanton, even though it wants to remain at Parkside:
“The Board will decide individual school zoning changes in the near future. No changes are anticipated at this point regarding the proposed zoning changes associated with the redistricting initiative. The Board has the authority to make changes to the administration’s school rezoning proposals.
The Summerhill neighborhood is immediately adjacent to D.H. Stanton
