Boundary Change 2022
Boundaries will be changing for 2022-2023 school year
The district’s boundary committee has developed several boundary change options to address growth in the southern portion of our district and is now looking for your feedback.
What Happens Next?
- We're still gathering feedback on 3 boundary change options. Submit your feedback
- The committee will present a boundary change recommendation to the school board on Nov. 18, with a final vote expected on Dec. 9.
- Families impacted by boundary changes will be notified of their new school assignments in mid-December. Those families who wish to apply for an alternate school choice may do so.
- Students who have been displaced by boundary changes - and who apply for alternate enrollment by Jan. 15, 2022 - will have priority in the alternate enrollment process. We will honor as many of these requests as possible. Contact our Enrollment Office at 651-351-8412 with questions.
- Boundary changes will be implemented for the 2022-2023 school year.
Guiding Principles for Attendance Boundary Changes:
- Decisions will be based on the best interests of ALL district students.
- A boundary plan will be created that positions us for our current needs and minimize future changes.
- Feedback from various stakeholders will be gathered to provide insight (School Board, administrative team, staff, and community group).
- Provide for a safe and efficient transportation system within board policy and procedures.
- Provide for the efficient utilization of district facilities to enhance learning opportunities for all students.
- Balance enrollment at existing elementary schools.
- Balance enrollment to middle school philosophy in both buildings.
- Alternate and open enrollments will be sent back to their designated attendance area to start the process at the elementary and middle school levels (exception: GATE, Amigos Unidos and Special Education site-based programs).
- To the extent possible, keep the feeder system to middle schools.
- To the extent possible, keep neighborhoods together (This does not mean that students will be sent to the school nearest their home, but rather that all students within a neighborhood be sent to the same school).
