• Boundaries Task Force holds third group meeting

    The Boundaries Task Force is continuing its work to develop possible scenarios for school boundary changes for the community and Board of Education's review. The group met for its third meeting on Dec. 17, 2018.

    The Boundaries Task Force is made up of 37 community members, including District 15 parents and residents without children in our schools. All members were selected by two community co-chairs.

    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. A flow chart of the Boundaries Task Force process is available on our website. 

    At the Dec. 17 meeting, the group divided into subcommittees and discussed goals and objectives. The subcommittees include:

    • Proposals
    • Data analysis
    • Educational impact
    • Community engagement
    • Oversight

    The task force will be continue to meet over the winter and spring months before sharing proposed boundary options with the community. Once community feedback is obtained and plans are refined, final proposals will be presented to the Board of Education for its review. The earliest date a change could occur is August of 2020.
