The school board unveiled a second draft of a districtwide overhaul of Moore County Schools’ attendance areas on Monday that more closely resembles the schools’ current attendance lines than its initial redistricting proposal last month.

Last year, the district began the process of reevaluating attendance lines to incorporate the four new elementary schools opening in the next two years. The school board designated sections of the current Vass-Lakeview and Sandhills Farm Life attendance areas as the 2019-2020 attendance area for the new McDeeds Creek Elementary on Camp Easter Road.

Looks great as long as the elite pinehurst children don’t have to mix with “those children” from southern pines and Aberdeen. Can we guarantee that a least until high school?
