Parents in the Maize school district who protested their student's assigned schools, will be able to send their child to the school of their choice.
It's an update to a story Eyewitness News brought you last month.
There are no geographical school boundaries in the growing school district. About 85-percent of the students in the district live outside the city limits. Most of them live closer to the new Maize south high school.
Parents told Eyewitness News the district needs a better plan for the future. Most of the parents frustrated with the system appealed their child's assigned school.
The USD 266 Board of Education granted 26 appeals this week. The measure means the families will be allowed to send students to their preferred school.
The district has formed a task force to look into future placement boundaries.
