Miami School District 2 Because of unexpected increases in enrollment the Miami school district has decided to redraw the school boundaries for the upcoming school year. This redraw means that students will be displaced to new schools. The school district’s action has caused much concern among parents and students. The concerns of all involved must be addressed in one way or another to ensure that all parties are heard and a solution can be reached.
