'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The North Allegheny School District plans to redraw school boundaries to offset current and potential overcrowding in several elementary and middle schools, administrators said.

The district will analyze data, including new housing starts, and conduct parent focus group meetings for the next several months, said Roger Botti, director of transportation and operations.

No recommendations have been made, but a final plan that would take effect in the 2014-15 school year should be cost-effective and avoid reassigning more students than necessary, said Robert J. Scherrer, assistant superintendent of K-12 education.

“Our core business is student learning,” he said at a school board meeting on Wednesday. The board could vote on a plan in February.

The district has redrawn school boundaries three times since the early 1990s.

Focus-group meetings will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Nov. 6 at Ingomar Elementary School; Nov. 7 at Peebles Elementary School (for parents of students at Peebles and Hosack Elementary School; Nov. 11 at Ingomar Middle School (for parents of all middle school students); Nov. 14 at Franklin Elementary School; Dec. 3 at McKnight Elementary School; and Dec. 9 at Marshall Elementary School (for parents of students at Marshall and Bradford Woods Elementary School).
