The School District of Palm Beach County's Advisory Boundary Committee held its third marathon meeting on Thursday that ended with a plan to submit to Superintendent Mike Burke.
It's the seventh version of a proposed student boundary map that shifts thousands of high school students around Palm Beach County to balance out enrollment at a handful of schools.
Under the map approved by the boundary committee on Thursday night, certain students from Palm Beach Central High School, John I. Leonard High School, Santaluces Community High School, and Park Vista Community High School would be rezoned for Dr. García High School.
The map also includes one change that rezones SAC 259B in west Boynton Beach from Olympic Heights Community High School to Park Vista.

The Advisory Boundary Committee will meet again on Jan. 26 to go over recommendations for Burke to consider when looking at the proposed map.
The map must be approved by Burke and then the Palm Beach County School Board twice before it's official.
