The Facilities and Enrollment Advisory Committee for Washington County Public Schools will hold four meetings for parents, teachers and others to offer input about proposed changes in attendance zones, according to a school system press release.

The committee, which includes parent and community representatives from all school attendance areas in the county, has been working on redistricting recommendations for several months, according to the release. Its work has focused on recommendations for attendance boundaries that would take effect as of August 2008, according to the release.

The first two meetings will focus on boundary realignments for the opening of the school system's newest elementary school in the Westfields development off Sharpsburg Pike, and will be open to people interested in the proposed realignments for Boonsboro, Emma K. Doub, Funkstown, Fountain Rock and Greenbrier elementary schools.

The first meeting will be Tuesday, April 24, at Boonsboro High School, and the second meeting will be Monday, May 7, at Williamsport High School.
