Proposed Boundary Changes

  • Boundary Changes Not Approved

    At their regular board meeting on January 27, 2021, the Board of Directors did not approve the recommendations in the School Boundary Review Final Report (PDF) previously presented at a special meeting on January 13, 2021. This means none of the proposed boundary changes for 2020-2021 will move forward at this time.

    The new elementary school currently being built will require boundary adjustments to open its doors to students this fall. A timeline for next steps was not discussed at the January 27 meeting.

    Reducing overcrowding, equitable access to educational programming, and balancing enrollment across all schools remain district priorities. We will continue to provide information and updates as they are available.

    As part of the Kent School District (KSD) boundary study, MGT Consulting presented its School Boundary Review Final Report (PDF) to the School Board on January 13, 2021.

    Keeping Students Together Through K-12

    To ensure students stay together with their peers from kindergarten through high school and so they have a clear understanding of which secondary schools they will attend, school attendance boundaries should be adjusted to create feeder pattern alignment. Elementary schools will feed entirely into a middle school and middle schools will feed entirely into a high school. 

    Alignment of feeder patterns in this manner will rectify the current inequitable alignment for those students that are split from their elementary school peers. To accomplish this goal, it is recommended that the district be divided into four strands by high school. 

    Not all elementary schools have proposed boundary changes.
