The Victoria school district board is expected to vote on new attendance zones at a special meeting Thursday.

The vote comes after a public information session hosted last week on the maps. The changes could move about 469 of the district's 14,220 students to new schools.

Most of the changes affect elementary school zones, which would also affect feeder patterns and move a small number of middle school students.

The school district reviews attendance zones every two years and adjusts them to create more equally-populated schools across the district.

The board is also expected to approve options for hiring a superintendent search firm. Superintendent Bob Moore announced Monday he will not renew next year's contract due to health concerns.
