SMYTH COUNTY, Va. -

The Smyth County school board has made a few changes.

We've learned they are working on redistricting the town to divide more than 800 Pre-K through fifth-grade students between two schools.

They are currently building Oak Point Elementary and renovating Marion Primary.

Assistant superintendent Jeffery Cassell tells News 5 they currently have two options, but are open to suggestions. "It may be that the board chooses one of those options or it could even make a few amendments to the current options before we actually come up with a final attendance area for each of the schools," he said.

Here's a link for detailed information about the two proposals.

The Smyth County School Board invited the public to come out Monday night and share their thoughts before a decision is made.
