Board members plan to authorize a boundary study in the spring, implementation in fall 2014.
Fairfax County School Board officials voted unanimously Thursday night to move ahead with a boundary study that looks to relocate county students attending Lanier Middle and Fairfax High School in an effort to solve Fairfax City overcrowding. Sixty-five percent of students attending city schools live in Fairfax County, according to a scope study conducted this fall. For that reason, they're a large part of what is putting city schools over enrollment. This year, FHS is over capacity by about 300 students; Lanier isn't far behind, with projections showing enrollment only about 10 students under capacity.

Fairfax County Public Schools officials were granted a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction mandating the online forum remove files with grades from Fairfax High School students.
Update 5:20 p.m.: Fairfax Underground founder and administrator Cary Wiedemann responded to the suit against him tonight on his website. The full text of his response appears below. As the order was issued without notice I was not provided any chance to respond to the school board's petition. I have a very limited time to file a Motion to Dissolve, and am currently exploring the merits of doing so, but as the injunction expires on January 4th, 2013 I may well abide by this temporary order and focus my efforts on ensuring the injunction doesn't become permanent. In compliance with the injunction I am currently performing a full MySQL database backup to preserve all of the original records, as I need to modify the offending post in order to …
