Growth at the elementary schools in South County is projected to continue and that's why these schools are so necessary, according to school district leaders.

Attendance boundaries will be brought forward in the future community outreach process.

The next steps include conducting a traffic analysis, looking at busing concerns and routes, principal selection, naming the school and more.
