Proposed attendance boundary changes under consideration
Quest to Viera Elementary School
Last year, the attendance Boundary Change Team outlined two potential boundary areas for the new Viera Elementary School, referred to as “Area A” and “Area B”. “Area A” was approved to be the attendance boundary for the new elementary school at the public hearing on January 28, 2020. Area B was previously identified as a potential addition to the Viera Elementary School’s attendance boundary. The proposed change would move "Area B" as shown on the map from Quest Elementary to Viera Elementary for school year 2021-2022.

Pinewood to Mims Elementary School
The Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning and School Concurrency provides the BPS facilities planning team a review of residential developments before they are approved by the County or various municipalities. A recent review of a proposed 440 home subdivision in the Mims area determined that 123 new elementary students would be generated from the new homes. This development is currently located in the Pinewood Elementary School attendance boundary but is adjacent to the border of the Mims Elementary School attendance boundary. The current and projected enrollment shows that the future students could be accommodated at Mims Elementary School, but there is not enough capacity at Pinewood Elementary School.
Please view the Proposed Attendance Boundary Change Map and Data HERE.
The proposed boundary change would not affect any students currently attending Pinewood Elementary School. One student that already attends Mims Elementary would be affected. The proposed area is closer in travel time and distance to Mims Elementary School than to Pinewood Elementary School.
Mims Elementary School has increased classroom capacity over the years by adding new classroom buildings, but no increases have been made to the original cafeteria. The facilities team is currently exploring options for a new cafeteria or a cafeteria expansion to accommodate the same number of students as the classroom capacity.
