Proposed school boundary changes sparking debate in Fairfax County

Boundary changes could be coming to the Commonwealth's largest school district and that's sparking debate on all sides. 

Fairfax County Public Schools is still in the early stages of deciding if changing the school district lines is even necessary. Some board members say it's needed for balance.

FOX 5 has learned every school could be under review and the district is leaning toward hiring an outside consultant to determine if the boundary changes are needed.

The boundary change discussion is being prompted by some board members who say schools must reflect racial and socioeconomic balance.

A spokesman for Fairfax County Schools says a vote on school boundaries will not take place anytime soon.

Meetings like Monday's are a way to discuss proposed changes to the boundary policy.
