Nov. 20 Boundary Open House Event Postponed, New Date TBA
November 9, 2018 By:Jason Heimerdinger
In response to community feedback, the November 20 Boundary Open House event has been postponed. A new date, locations and format for the next community input event will be announced soon.
At its meeting on November 6, the Boundary Review Task Force heard feedback collected following Boundary Open House events held at three locations on October 30. Examples of themes heard in the community feedback ranged from concerns about the ability to attend the Open House on November 20 date, to concerns about impacts to neighborhoods, socio-economic balance and continuity of progression from elementary to middle and high schools.
After reviewing the feedback and a presentation on equity, Task Force members continued to work on making boundary adjustments with the feedback in mind. Updated maps that show the group’s progress will be posted on the district website when ready.
The Task Force will continue working and making adjustments until it reaches consensus on a final boundary adjustment scenario. The goal of the Task Force is to provide a final recommendation for adjusted boundaries to the Superintendent at the December 11, 2018 School Board meeting.
