SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Assigned school zones are expected to change for hundreds of students in the Savannah-Chatham County School System (SCCPSS) under a recommended facilities plan.

Officials say the realignment is in response to population shifts and commercial growth throughout the county and will ultimately improve transportation, security and instruction time for students.

“This plan will ‘right size’ the census in our schools, reducing overcrowding at some schools, while offering more sustainable and economical operations at others with better utilization of educational space and components,” a press release from SCCPSS reads.

There are no staffing reductions planned as a result of the zone changes, officials note.

The adjustments would impact 20 schools starting in August 2024, though some impacts wouldn’t be felt until the following school year.


SCCPSS says these maps are being ​​updated by current address locations in their student information system.
