HUNTERTOWN, Ind. (WFFT) - Northwest Allen County Schools' newest elementary is starting to take shape.
District leaders are working on shaping the lines to fill Aspen Meadows Elementary with students.
"Nobody wants to leave their home school and there are going to be some disappointed students and parents," said NACS spokeswoman Lizette Downey.
A lot has changed since the current lines were drawn.
There are 700 more elementary students in NACS, full day kindergarten was implemented and more houses are being built.
"We don't know the makeup of those families and you can't assume they are all going to start at the very beginning," said Downey.
The district formed seven groups, mostly made up of parents and students, to help figure out how to change the elementary boundaries.
"We wanted to get as many people involved as possible because it helps them better understand and talk to their neighbors, friends and family," said Downey.
Clement Sakyi has a kindergartner at Eel River Elementary.
He's not worried about sending his son to a new school in the fall.
"If things are close to what we have now, where you know your child is going to get a better a better education and being prepared," said Sakyi.
Downey said parents shouldn't worry about that.
"Any school is going to serve your child very well, and it's an opportunity to make new friends," she said.
NACS is planning on holding meetings next month so parents can weigh in on the proposed changes.
The NACS board is expected to make a decision where the lines will be drawn in March.
