Some parents of Westover High School students were upset when their kids had to transfer after school started because the school system said they don't live in Westover's zone.
Students zoned for the county's other three high schools were allowed to petition to go to Westover since it's the only high school that meets AYP standards.
They had to do that before the school year started, so the students recently forced to transfer didn't have that opportunity.
Wednesday, school leaders decided to let them come back to Westover.
"The purpose of the letter was to make sure all of our students are residing in the proper zone, and give the parents an opportunity to come in and talk to us and provide that documentation. There was some discussion about those students being reassigned to their current school, but at this time that process is on hold," said William Chunn, Westover High Principal.
Principal Chunn said they will start strictly enforcing the zoning policy in the ninth grade to prevent future problems.
