Students living in several neighborhoods near the Elizabethtown post office will be heading to different schools beginning next school year after the Hardin County Schools board approved redistricting at its regular board meeting Thursday.
Streets near the U.S. Post Office and E-town Swim & Fitness, namely the Crimson Creek and Crown Pointe areas, have been redistricted to Heartland Elementary School, Bluegrass Middle School and John Hardin High School. Students in the area currently attend G.C. Burkhead Elementary School, East Hardin Middle School and Central Hardin High School.
The Cowley Crossing neighborhood off Wilson Road will be in the district assigned to Bluegrass and John Hardin, instead of North Middle School and North Hardin High School. The subdivision's elementary school assignment will remain Rineyville Elementary.
District officials wanted to move students to schools closer to their homes and buildings that had the capacity to handle more students.
Letters were sent to families in the area and the district held a forum to hear from parents. The changes received little response from the community, according to district employees.
