If the server is handing out /24 network prefixes, then once your clients
bind the offered address in 10.0.0/24, they can no longer communicate with 
the server in 10.0.1/24.

You can

a) give the DHCP server an alias IP address in 10.0.0/24 on the
   appropriate interface
b) change the network prefix to 16 bits, so that 10.0.0 and 10.0.1
   (and ALL other addresses with the prefix 10.0) are in the same 
   logical network space
c) renumber your DHCP pool
