Boundary Study Background
We are excited to open a new elementary school in the fall of 2021, funded by the 2016 bond, which requires revising current school attendance boundaries. The opening of the new school will help reduce overcrowding in some schools and, eventually, help balance enrollment districtwide.
A final report and recommendations will be presented to the school board in January 2021. If approved by the board, implementation of new school attendance boundaries will begin in the 2021-2022 school year.
