Parents and students had a chance Thursday to check out the schools they'll be rezoned to for next school year.
Some Knox County elementary schools will be rezoned beginning in August of this year. It's all part of a plan to help alleviate overcrowding in the classroom.
A new school is being built near the Northshore Town Center to also help with the problem.
Parents we talked to at Cedar Bluff Elementary said they'll miss their old schools, but are excited for the change.
"The teachers and the principal so far have been very welcoming, and the event tonight has been very good for us to walk around and explore and get to know the faculty and staff here," said Brian Stiles, a parent at Ball Camp Elementary.
If you missed any of the open houses, there are still a few more school tours before March.
