The Attendance Boundary Committee held its first meeting on Sept. 6. Dr. Monsees provided the background information on the Long Range Facility Plan and the subsequent need to create new boundaries for the 2017-2018 school year.
A timeline of committee work was shared along with the committee charge. The intention is to develop recommended boundaries by December for Board of Education consideration.
The committee established operating norms for its work, brainstormed on various data sources to be reviewed, and began the process of prioritizing the criteria to be utilized in the boundary development process. The next meeting is scheduled for Sept. 20.
