Background

The Boundary Change Review Committee, comprised of parents, staff, community members and student voice, has met since last March to review school boundaries with the intent of balancing enrollment and providing equitable educational programs.

This work was driven by the committee’s core beliefs of giving our students, schools, and families better access to special programs; in most cases, reduce time students will be on buses; remove most of our students from learning in portables; and take enrollment pressure off our highest impacted schools and communities.
