When driving westbound on Jereme Trail, from Coit, it is unclear where the school zone for Curtsinger ends.
As a result, it is also unclear whether any of the connecting streets west of Norfolk are covered by the school zone when it is active.
What are the exact boundaries of the school zone at the front of Curtsinger?

The end of a school zone is indicated by the white bar painted across the road and a sign that says "END SCHOOL ZONE" or "RESUME SPEED LIMIT 30". (The white bar is also the start of the school zone if you are driving in the opposite direction.) In the case of Jereme Trail, I know the white bar is there, and I will verify that the proper speed limit sign is in place.
The school zone along Jereme Trail is from just west of Wilmington Drive to just east of Greensboro Drive. None of the north-south streets west of Norfolk are included in the school zone. When you are in a school zone and turn off of the street, the connecting street is only covered by the school zone if you see a 20mph speed limit sign on that street.
