UPDATE 12/04: The address look-up tool has been updated to reflect all assignment changes.
UPDATE 12/03: The board approved assignment changes for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 school years. The only change made today from Draft 2 is that students reassigned from Highcroft Drive Elementary to Turner Creek Elementary will have Baucom Elementary as their traditional calendar application school instead of Green Hope Elementary, as originally opposed. The address look-up tool will be updated to reflect this change tomorrow and then shared with all families in the district.
UPDATE 12/03: Watch the board work session discussion.

The Draft 2 proposal was developed after staff and board members considered feedback and questions from parents gathered over several weeks, both online and at three Open House information sessions.
Here are the changes made from Draft 1 to Draft 2:
Draft 2 Change: Students who were proposed to be reassigned from Highcroft Drive Elementary to Salem Elementary in Draft 1 are now proposed to attend Turner Creek Elementary.
Purpose: Provides these families with a more proximate school assignment and helps ensure Salem Elementary doesn’t get too crowded while still relieving crowding at Highcroft Drive.
Draft 2 Change: Students who were proposed to be reassigned from Brassfield Elementary to Wakefield Elementary are now proposed to remain at Brassfield. Staff plans to make a revised recommendation next year.
Purpose: Draft 1 split the River Run neighborhood.
Draft 2 Change: Students who were proposed to be reassigned from Fuquay-Varina Middle to North Garner Middle in Draft 1 are now proposed to attend West Lake Middle.
Purpose: Provides these families with a more proximate school assignment while still relieving crowding at Fuquay-Varina Middle.
Draft 2 Change: A northern portion of the Highcroft Drive Elementary base that currently is undeveloped is proposed to be reassigned to Carpenter Elementary and Alston Ridge Middle.
Purpose: Will help prevent future overcrowding at Highcroft Drive Elementary.
Draft 2 Change: Adding currently undeveloped land to the Fuquay-Varina High base.
Purpose: Will help ensure a healthy school population at Fuquay-Varina High. Draft 1 proposal would have reduced Fuquay-Varina High School to 69% capacity in 2023-24.
Why is this plan necessary?
As you are aware, many towns and cities in our community have been experiencing rapid population growth.
To keep up with that growth and prevent the overcrowding of schools, we’re building two new schools:
- South Lakes Elementary, 1433 Old Honeycutt Road, Fuquay-Varina, opening in August 2020
- Willow Spring High School, 1704 Old Honeycutt Road, Fuquay-Varina, opening in August 2021
The majority of proposed school assignment changes will be related to the opening of the two new schools in Fuquay-Varina, one in 2020 and one in 2021.
Other components of the proposal are aimed at relieving some overcrowded schools, better utilizing under-enrolled schools, and improving transportation efficiency.
