Starr recommends boundary changes in Bethesda-Chevy Chase and Silver Spring

There are officially some proposals on the table in Montgomery County to mix around students and schools in a process commonly known as Dreaded Boundary Changes.

Superintendent Joshua Starr made recommendations Friday for tweaks to attendance zones in the maxed-out Bethesda-Chevy Chase cluster, as well as some changes in Silver Spring to make way for a new elementary school opening in the McKenney Hills neighborhood next fall.

He’s also proposing that the Carl Sandburg Learning Center, now a stand-alone special education facility, become a part of a modernized Maryvale Elementary School in 2018.
