Zoning and Naming

REZONING: Click here to see current school zones, rezoning approved to begin in 2019-20, and additional recommendations proposed by our Zoning Advisory Committee that will soon be brought to our Board of Trustees for approval. This map is not yet optimized for mobile; it will work best on a desktop or laptop.

Watch this video to understand more about how rezoning will work:

Some new school zones, like those for and related to the new Nick Poulakidas Elementary School in south Reno, do not have final recommendations from the committee yet and therefore do not appear in the map.
