Area I proposed attendance area

A map of the Union Pines area, with the proposed 2019-2020 attendance zone for the new school on Camp Easter Road shown in yellow. 

The school district’s process of deciding who will attend the new elementary school on Camp Easter Road when it opens next year is winding to a close.

On Monday, the Moore County Board of Education reviewed what could be the final attendance area for that school, which is situated to draw students from the overenrolled Sandhills Farm Life and Vass-Lakeview elementary schools. The plan has been through several rounds of revision and input from parents and school staff at community meetings.

What a pity that a mega school was built far from neighborhoods. Better would have been multiple small schools of a standard, no frills design. A 500 pupil K-5 school can be built easily on 4 acres, allowing children to walk or ride bikes to school. See Thales Academies for proof that this works, and could save 2/3rds of the cost for the gold-plated mega government schools now planned for Moore County, where enrollment growth is flat. One suggestion for a name for this school is ‘Far Away’.
