HERNANDO, MS (abc24.com) - DeSoto County Schools has decided to cancel plans to change district lines, the school board announced Wednesday.

The district had planned to change attendance zones for 26 schools to ease overcrowding in order to meet fire marshal requirements.

Superintendent Milton Kuykendall stated, "We have decided not to move forward with redistricting or rezoning. We have worked out a solution to creatively use existing buildings and accommodate our enrollment."

Kuykendall continued, "New letters are going out today to parents to tell them their child's attendance zone is not changing… We thank them for their cooperation and input."
