Current Boundaries (as of Summer 2021)
Boundary Committee Guiding Principles
The future boundary should…
- Ensure an equitable student experience at each school
- Work as a part of the district’s long-range planning
- Anticipate future change of the neighborhood
- Continue to effectively utilize all the available District resources
- Focus on all grade levels (Elementary, Middle & High)
The following are always to be considered:
- Exceptional education must take place at each facility in every option
- The goal is to focus on Board of Education goals and priorities, and provide for the educational needs of each student
- Contiguous Attendance Areas: To create boundaries that visually make sense.
- Demographic Considerations: Ensure student academic, social, and mental health needs are met at each school for each specific academic program.
- Duration of Boundaries: Ensure boundary adjustments are anticipating possible changes in the future.
- Feeder System Considerations - Ensure as many schools have students move from one grade level to maximize student connectivity with their peers.
- Fiscal Consideration - Capital: Ensure boundary changes minimize the need and/or effectively eliminate the need for additional construction projects.
- Fiscal Consideration - Operational: Ensure boundary changes minimize the need and/or effectively eliminate the need for additional construction projects.
- Neighborhoods Intact: Ensure subdivisions are maintained in a school’s attendance area. Utilize natural divisions between neighborhoods as attendance line.
- Projected Enrollment/Building Utilization: Ensure enrollment at each school is within an efficient building capacity for educational programming in that school.
- Students Impacted by Boundary Change: Minimize the disruptions and transitions of students.
- Transportation Considerations: Ensure transportation systems are considered, including appropriate bus routes, time students spend on a bus, and logistics.
