The Chandler Unified School District governing board approved a plan Wednesday that will transition Knox Elementary School into the Knox Gifted Academy over the next few years.

The 5-0 vote means the school will not accept kindergarten or other new students to its typical classrooms beginning next school year. Knox Gifted Academy is in place as a "school within a school," currently with 219 students. Enrollment in the kindergarten through sixth-grade program next year is expected to rise to about 300, with 360 students predicted for the 2013-14 school year.

Students who move into the square mile bounded by Alma School Road, Arizona Avenue, Warner and Ray roads will be assigned to Andersen and Sanborn elementary schools.
