The three elementary boundary options coincide with the opening of the new east side elementary school currently under construction at East 26th Street, between Sycamore Avenue and Highway 11. The four middle school boundary options maximize existing space in some schools and prevent overcrowding in others. Administrations created the option by considering the boundary planning assumptions approved by the School Board in September and by taking input from teach and parent advisory groups from each school impacted. Parents can study the options by reading the ―Boundary Lines‖ newsletter, which will be distributed to all public elementary and middle school families during the week of November 13th. Parents, students and the general public can also learn more about the options by attending the public meetings listed below: Information presented at each meeting will be the same.
