Facilities Public Input
Five public and two student focus groups were held in October to receive input from community members about their priorities when it comes to how the district should decide which schools should be closed. More than 400 people participated in those meetings and more than 200 people submitted their input through an online form.
Along with providing input about criteria, the district also asked attendees about their thoughts, questions and concerns related to the process and the possibility of closing schools. Those discussions were captured by facilitators at the meetings and can be see below.

Attendance boundary process
A Design team that includes community members 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 options for new attendance boundaries.
Community members will have opportunities to provide feedback on attendance boundary options prior to a recommendation coming to the board. Details about these opportunities are still being worked out, but they are expected to take place in January.
