It looks like I was wrong when I said that only the easternmost edge of Varna would be affected by Ithaca elementary school redistricting. Admittedly I was quoting the Ithaca Journal and the ICSD's maps weren't very clear, but it's pretty plain now that the change is much more drastic.
In the current elementary school map, children in the Town of Dryden attend Cayuga Heights (green) and Caroline (brown) elementary schools. I've heard of Varna children attending Northeast and Belle Sherman as well, though that's not shown on this map and may be open enrollment.
The rightmost edge of the light blue at the top is Sapsucker Woods Road, and marks the Dryden-Ithaca town boundary. You can extend that line south as an indicator of the town line.
There are three redistricting scenarios posted on the ICSD redistricting site:
In all of these maps, the Dryden portion looks like:
In this second map, the pinkish-purple is for Caroline. No bright green for Cayuga Heights remains in the Town of Dryden.
As I noted earlier, the Ithaca school board will be looking at redistricting tonight from 7:00pm to 9:30pm at the district's administration building (map).Posted by simon at March 15, 2005 12:01 PM in Varna , schools (Ithaca)
