Zoning Advisory Committee

  • Mission Statement

    As a committee to the Board of Trustees, the function of the Zoning Advisory Committee is to make school attendance zone recommendations to the Superintendent and Board of Trustees. The Committee operates in accordance with Board Policy 7105, School and Attendance Zones.


    Current Issues 

    As the Washoe County School District begins the process of building new schools, the Zoning Advisory Committee is looking at potential changes to school attendance zoning. This year, 2021-22, the Committee will continue looking at changing attendance zones for all District high schools and other schools as needed. All meetings are open to the public and public comment is encouraged and welcomed.
