I particularly like the Bartlett High district that is non-contiguous. nice.

I noticed we have been rezoned for Arlington instead of Bolton. hmmmm

Dear Smart:

The comment from Anon (5:57 pm)on your previous post goes to the heart of sprawl and huge Shelby County debt. In many jurisdictions developers are required to dedicate land for schools or pay a fee proportionate to the subdivision's impact on school construction.

Here the developers talk the school board into buying land close to their proposed developments instead of where schools should rationally be placed.

AC Wharton has supposedly tried to get permission from the State for a development tax or fee to lower the taxpayer burden, like the $84,000 per acre for the Southwind school, but so far Shelby's legislators have not backed him.

As a county resident, I am curious to know how legal it is for MCS to charge tuition (MCS Optional Program)for county residence. I reside in the Millington area and have toured schools such as Woodstock and Millington High. I was not impressed. How does a system require out of district tuition, when you are paying for public school already? Just a little confused. Can someone clarify...

Love your blog! I had my own proud wiki moment today in English when the word Attendance Zones was used and even the teacher wasn't sure what it meant. Thankfully last week I was reading about ethnic demographic in different countries and happened to follow some links to get to the definition of that very word.

Hey, listen, do you know how can I do in order to take that huge banner off my screen? There is no way to do it and it has no cancel button or anything like that!
