School Boundary Adjustment Process

The District has completed and implemented the new Elementary and Middle school boundary adjustments. The District's Technical and Stakeholder Committee is now starting to review the High School boundaries and propose options for boundary updates. It is time to adjust our High school boundaries to reflect the demographic changes, enrollment changes and attendance area changes to balance the attendance and staffing at our high schools.

On January 25th, 2024 the Board of Trustees reviewed the 1.25.24 presentation compiled of the recommendations of the Stakeholder and Technical Committee and Community based on the below guiding principles. 

The Stakeholder Committee comprises District administrators, school Principals, parent representatives (PTA), City representation, and APT and CSEA representatives. In addition to the high school boundaries, the committee has developed recommendations around transition planning and impacts to the middle school boundaries. The following Guiding Principles have been used in developing the boundary options.

  1. The high school capacity (existing or with proposed new facilities) should be able to meet the projected enrollment for the next 5-7 years
  2. Schools projected enrollments should be balanced using boundary adjustments 
  3. The enrollments at the high schools should be balanced to the extent allowed by the schools capacity (existing or with proposed new facilities)
  4. School boundaries should enhance neighborhood schools and community engagement
  5. School boundaries should support safe routes to schools, student safety and public transportation routes to the extent possible
  6. School boundaries should promote socioeconomic diversity among the students and community to the extent possible
  7. Boundary adjustment should include a transition plan that minimize the impacts to students and families
