Redistricting Info

UPDATED: APRIL 25, 2017

After much discussion regarding feedback and information provided to the Redistricting Task Force through the latest community survey and through other communications, an announcement was made at last night’s Board of Education meeting as an update to on the redistricting initiative.  

At this time the task force is unable to come to a consensus on the current structure and maps for Option #1 or Option #3.  It has been decided that a small group team of task force members will be working over the next two weeks to design a revised and refined “hybrid model” containing the best components of both options.  The task force will then convene one last time to take a final look at this model and have a discussion about its details.

The following parameters will be in place as this hybrid model and the accompanying maps are developed for consideration.

  • Current grade configurations will remain intact for Sylvania Schools at all current school buildings
  • Building framework and design will stay the same (7 elementary schools (Grades K-5), 3 junior high schools (Grades 6-8) and 2 high schools (grades 9-12)
  • Boundary maps will be revised and redesigned meeting the goal of balancing enrollment across the district and keeping in mind socioeconomic diversity at all levels
  • Direct feeder patterns and keeping students together as much as possible will be priorities as work on this hybrid model design takes place

The Board of Education intends to make a final decision (that will go into effect for the 2018-2019 school year) by the end of this May.  The Board’s next meeting will take place on May 8, 2017.
