Hattiesburg developments may affect schools

New housing developments in Hattiesburg may have an effect on where elementary students attend school next year.

In a meeting Monday, school board members proposed some district lines should change in order to move students from over-crowded Lillie Burney and Grace Christian Schools to less-crowded Rowan and Hawkins.

About 200 additional students will move into the district by next school year. No changes will be made to Thames or Woodley.
