Attendance Boundaries

As part of the Facilities Realignment process and with the potential for closing two elementary schools and one middle school, District 191 will need to alter its current attendance boundaries.
 
Attendance boundaries define which students attend each school. Despite significant changes in District 191’s population and enrollment, the district hasn’t changed its attendance boundaries since Harriet Bishop Elementary School and Eagle Ridge Middle School opened in 1996.

Process

The district will convene a Design Team of employees and community members to help manage the attendance boundary process. The team will be responsible for analyzing data including where current students live, student demographics, potential future development that might affect enrollment, transportation concerns and more, and developing attendance boundary options. Community members will have an opportunity to provide input on the options developed by the Design Team before a recommendation is presented to the Board of Education.

Informational Presentations

Families are invited to attend informational and feedback meetings scheduled for Jan. 13-15. Attendees will learn about attendance boundaries, why they are being changed, and the district’s goals for the process. The same information will be presented at each meeting, and the district will ask for feedback on the boundary options presented.

Presentation Materials

In working to draw new attendance boundaries, the district uses numbered "areas," which are sections of the district that we don't want to split between two schools. It may be helpful to know which area you live in to see how your address fits into each scenario. You can find your area using this map, or enter your address in SchoolFinder and find your Area listed in the results. 

Two scenarios will be presented at each information and feedback meeting:
