The planning process for new St. Johns County schools is now underway.
This morning, the St. Johns County School Board confirmed plans for three new schools in northern part of the County, including a K-8 school in the Nocatee community [to open for 2017-18 school year]. The school site in Nocatee has not been finalized, but is expected to be identified early 2016. The County's schedule of a Spring 2016 construction start date was also announced.
School zoning is reviewed every fall, before the school year begins, and many Nocatee students are expected to attend the new school. This school is the second K-8 school to join the community in recent years. Valley Ridge Academy opened its doors for the 2014-15 school year.
