This is the image for the news article titled Find Out More About Redistricting HereIn preparation for the opening of Hopewell Elementary and Walden Middle School for the 2019-2020 school year, and in order to balance our very different high school enrollments, we will be redistricting all of our attendance boundaries, from elementary through high school.

Redistricting will help us continue to be one of the best districts around by protecting our low class sizes and making sure we can balance our resources.

The new boundaries will take effect in August 2019.

redistricting recommendations

At its final meeting on Dec. 5, the redistricting committee voted to recommend the B1 scenario for elementary boundaries and the B1/B2 scenario for middle- and high-school boundaries.

Committee's Recommended Boundaries

The committee also provided a list of recommended adjustments they would like the district staff to consider making to the map.

Committee Members' Suggestions for Possible Adjustments to Boundaries

Staff members made recommendations to the Board about grandfathering students:

  • Administrators requested that the Board allow families of students who are currently in fourth, ninth, 10th and 11th grades to choose to remain at their current school.
  • Transportation would be the responsibility of the family.
  • Grandfathering would not apply to these students' siblings.
  • Families would need to make a decision to remain at the school before March 1, 2019.
  • Students must meet district residency and attendance requirements.

The Board of Education received the recommendations and listened to feedback from dozens of parents and community members at its Dec. 6 meeting.

FINAL RECOMMENDATION

We carefully considered the suggestions from the redistricting committee and the public about how to change the B1 map, and we found we were able to produce a revised recommendation to the Board of Education that makes many of those changes.

We tried to only move families who had requested – or at least had an opportunity to review – possible changes. Unfortunately, a few of the suggestions were not possible without seriously hurting the enrollment balance between schools.

The Board plans to vote tomorrow night, Dec. 13, on this updated recommendation for our redistricted boundaries and on our recommendation for grandfathering students in certain grades to stay at their current schools. The 7 p.m. meeting is open to the public, and there will be opportunities for the public to address the Board.
