  5. Part of Normal Heights go from D to B
  6. Part of Cortez, Core-Columbia and East Village go from C to D
Hoover High School moves from B to D. Includes a part of Talmadge neighborhood.

These boundary adjustments impact the board representation of three schools: Hoover High School, Grant and Clay elementary schools.
