Yet another anonymous petition to redraw school attendance zones in Atlanta Public Schools surfaced on Friday.
“Petition: 10-year plan” aims to provide a ten-year Grady cluster overcrowding solution that yields “maximum results” with “minimal upheaval.”
The plan includes sending the community — students from Inman Park, Candler Park and Lake Claire — to Coan Middle School and Jackson High School.
Mary Lin students currently attend and Grady High School. Both Inman and Grady are overcrowded and projection numbers indicate little relief over the next ten years.
The anonymous proposal attemps to remove annex and academy options at all levels by redistricting Mary Lin to the Jackson cluster.
On the elementary level, the petition adds Hope-Hill to the Inman and Grady cluster, a plan that Superintendent Erroll B. Davis Jr. also had on the table in his initial recommendation. The group also suggests making Centennial Place Elementary a kindergarten-through-eighth grade campus.
