New school boundaries that Fairfield-Suisun School District officials have said are intended to maintain neighborhood schools won approval Thursday by trustees and will affect reopened Dover School along with nearby David Weir, Grange, Cleo Gordon, Laurel Creek and Tolenas schools.
Boundary changes begin in the 2016-17 school year.
Dover School closed in 2009 as part of school district budget-related changes.
Brian Purcell, chairman of a boundary advisory committee, told school board members in August that safer walking distances – including issues surrounding children who cross Air Base Parkway to go to school – were among matters the committee discussed.
