The Pasco County School Board has set boundaries for the new Starkey Ranch K-8 school under construction in the Starkey Ranch development.
The school — part of a complex that includes a theater, library and cultural center — is scheduled to open in the 2021-2022 school year.
The board adopted the boundaries during it Dec. 1 board meeting.
Starkey Ranch K-8 will have a capacity for 1,500 students, and initially will open for kindergarten through seventh grade, allowing students entering eighth grade to remain at their current school.
The new school will draw students from Longleaf and Odessa elementary schools, as well as River Ridge Middle.
The school also will be a magnet school, attracting students from beyond its assigned boundaries.
In addition to adopting boundaries for Starkey Ranch K-8, the board made some minor adjustments involving the boundaries of Watergrass and Wesley Chapel elementary schools.
That change is being made as a result of the Epperson Ranch subdivision, Williams said.
No one from the public spoke for or against the boundary changes during the board’s meeting.
