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. 

    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. During the 2017/2018 school year, the committee will hold a series of public meetings where members will discuss and approve zoning change recommendations that will be sent to the Board of Trustees. All meetings are open to the public and public comment is encouraged and welcomed.
