Bryce Ellis, Assistant Superintendent for Operations, and James Fossa, Facilities & Planning, reviewed the attached visual presentation re Florida Statute 1001.36 relative to district school board member residence areas and the option of the school board to make any change that it deems necessary in the boundaries of any district school board member residence area, provided such changes are made only in odd-numbered years and without effect to the residence qualifications of any incumbent member during the elected term.  Current board member district boundaries were discussed and two alternate options for board member boundary changes were reviewed with careful consideration to equity among numbers and remaining within 10% of the optimum population.

Board member discussion included the desire to see additional proposed options, projected growth in the Lake Asbury/Green Cove Springs area, reviewing proposals and/or meeting jointly with the Board of County Commissioners re BCC's proposed boundary revisions, numbering of the districts, and the timeline for advertising and approving any proposed revisions.

The board may hold additional workshop(s) as needed to further discuss and consider additional alternative proposals requested for consideration of boundary revisions.
