(Bartlett, TN) Bartlett City Schools has approved new attendance zones and a new freshman academy at Shadowlawn Middle.
Out of several zoning options, plan ‘C’ was selected for the elementary schools, putting more students at Rivercrest.
The idea for a freshman academy came about because there were too many students expected to attend Bartlett High in the fall.
Moving Freshman to Shadowlawn, which had lots of space, helps keep class sizes low at Bartlett High.
The board said although they had received some negative feedback about the academy on social media, many of those comments came from the same people.
Few opponents showed up at the meeting tonight.
