Town hall meetings scheduled to discuss SJCSD zoning


Three town hall meetings have been scheduled by the St. Johns County School District (SJCSD) to discuss potential attendance zoning changes for the two new K-8 schools currently under construction and opening for the 2018-2019 school year. 

K-8 School “KK” is located at 2135 Palm Valley Road in Ponte Vedra and is being constructed using monies from the school impact fees, school proportionate-share mitigation fees and the half-cent sales tax passed in November 2015. 

K-8 School “LL” is located at 1365 Shetland Drive in St. Johns and is being constructed using monies from the half-cent sales tax. Other possible attendance zone changes relate to Heritage Park located off Woodlawn Road and the Sawmill Landing development located off of SR 207, both in St. Augustine.

The meetings will take place as follows:

·         Tuesday, Sept. 5, at 6 p.m. at Creekside High School, 100 Knights Lane, St. Johns.

·         Thursday, Sept. 7, at 6 p.m. at Valley Ridge Academy, 105 Greenleaf Drive, Ponte Vedra.

·         Thursday, Sept. 14, at 6 p.m. at First Coast Technical College, Building C, Collins Avenue, St. Augustine.

The same information will be discussed at all three meetings. School board members and district staff will be in attendance, and there will be opportunities for public comment.

Proposals are being developed and could impact attendance zones and students at Cunningham Creek Elementary, Durbin Creek Elementary, Fruit Cove Middle School, Alice B. Landrum Middle School, Otis A. Mason Elementary School, R.J. Murray Middle School, Ocean Palms Elementary, Palencia Elementary School, Pacetti Bay Middle School, Patriot Oaks Academy, Sebastian Middle School, Switzerland Point Middle School and Valley Ridge Academy.
