Boundaries Task Force
The Boundaries Task Force held its first meeting on Sept. 27, 2018. Of the 224 people who applied to be part of the group, co-chairs Sid Aman and Nipesh Patel selected 37 members representing all schools and geographic areas of the school district. Membership includes District 15 parents and residents without children enrolled in District 15 schools.
The task force was formed for two reasons: To mitigate capacity concerns at several schools where enrollment is increasing and to address community issues with the current boundary lines.
There is not a firm timeline in place for if and when school boundaries might change. Once the task force determines 3-4 possible scenarios for new boundaries, they will be shared with the community and refined based upon community feedback. After this takes place, the recommendations will be presented to the board for its consideration.
D15 Boundaries Task Force Community Priorities Survey
Community members were asked to take a school boundaries priorities survey, issued by the District 15 Boundaries Task Force. Results from the survey will help the group form its decisions and next steps in examining the District 15 school boundaries. The survey was open through October 19, 2018.
