The Task Force took the next step at how to better rezone the 75,000 student metro school district Saturday morning. The 12 person group made up of parents, lawmakers, and business leaders are working to find a balance on issues ranging from racial equality to utilizing schools to their full capacity. Mark North, Chair of the community Task Force said, "Student assignment is a complicated matter and it is our goal to come up with a comprehensive plan that provides excellent educational opportunities for every resident of Davidson... ... County. North says the four hour meeting was a success and that the group is now ready to move forward with the school rezoning plans. The Task Force meets again February 8th. The panel is supposed to make its recommendations to the school board by April. Any changes the board approves would go into effect for the 2009-2010 school year.
