The Fairfax County Public School Board approved a boundary change for Fairfax High School and Lanier Middle School on May 9, 2013. The changes will be implemented in the 2014-2015 school year.
FCPS staff proposed three options in March and presented a fourth option as their staff recommendation. For background information, please see the FCPS website.
The board approved this staff recommendation with an added amendment. Highlights of the boundary change include:
- Rising 11th and 12th graders in 2014-2015 FHS will be ‘grandfathered’ and allowed to graduate from FHS. Rising 8th graders at LMS will also be allowed to stay at Lanier. Rising 7th and 9th graders in the 2013-2014 school year can attend LMS/FHS or begin at their newly assigned school with transportation provided.
- The Greenbriar West Elementary School attendance area east of Stringfellow Road will move from Lanier Middle to Rocky Run Middle School and from Fairfax High to Chantilly High School. This eliminates the current split feeder assignment from Greenbriar West Elementary.
- Fairfax Villa Elementary attendance area will move from LMS/FHS to Frost Middle and Woodson High School.
- Penderbrook and Fairfax Farms area of the Waples Mill Elementary School will move from Lanier to Franklin in 2013-2014 and from FHS to Oakton starting in 2014-2015.
We at the City of Fairfax Schools would like to thank the FCPS School Board for their work on this issue.
