BROKEN ARROW, Okla. -- Broken Arrow Public Schools held a meeting Monday night to decide on a new redistricting plan.

School administrators say the re-zoning is needed to fill the new Sequoah Middle School and help with overcrowding issues in the district.

Officials say students at Highland Park, Liberty, Country Lane and Creekwood would have to change schools.

Sean Parish says the district re-zoned his neighborhood three years ago.

Parish says he doesn't think the redistricting is fair for their education. "Some of us are being shift (sig) around every couple of years to new schools and that hinders children's social development."

If the board approves the plan, the district is offering transfer requests for redistricted students from January 9 to February 9.

Parish says if he's unable to transfer his students, he may even consider moving into a new neighborhood.
