Redistricting Info

Updated: February 7, 2017

These are the three conceptual options that were presented to the Task Force on Monday, February 6th. The Task Force will work through these three options going forward. Their focus will be to determine the advantages and disadvantages all of the options. For each option, they will consider the educational, social, geographic and financial impact. For all options, increasing transportation efficiency through school start times will also be a consideration. They will then report to the Board of Education, who will make the final decision regarding redistricting. The Board will have the option to follow the task force entirely, in part, or come up with its own decision, but the intention is to give the work of the task force significant consideration. 

In an effort to gain feedback from students, parents, staff, and community members, the Task Force has created a survey about the redistricting options presented.
