HOOVER, AL (WBRC) - A federal judge has given a preliminary approval for Hoover City School's rezoning plan but is putting a delay on implementing the plan for a year.

The Hoover City Schools initially wanted to implement this plan for the 2016-2017 school year.

Judge Madeline Haikala has denied that request, ruling that the school system needs more time to tweak the plan. Hoover is under intense scrutiny because it is still considered a dual school system under a 1965 desegregation order by the U.S. Supreme Court. This means the system must have any rezoning plans reviewed and approved by the DOJ. 

Haikala has set additional deadlines for school officials to appear in court and present their assessments to her.
