A member of the Roanoke County school board is offering a new redistricting plan.
Construction of the south county high school has led to controversy over attendance zones, and tonight Bill Irvin released a proposal he hopes will win school board approval.
His plan would send students from Hidden Valley Junior High to the existing high school, and students at Cave Spring Junior to the NEW high school. The plan would not affect the elementary feeder schools, with the exception of Cave Spring Elementary. Students who live near the new high school would have the option of attending Cave Spring Middle.

The plan will be distributed to parents, and a public hearing is scheduled June 20th.

Check out the pictures as the Southern crater erupted this morning. After five hours of tremors, Mount Etna spewed lava and sent up a mile high column of ash and smoke.
