Boundary Review Telephone Survey – Your Input is Important

Phone surveys to school district parents and guardians about school boundaries will take place in September. There will be 385 surveys completed with an emphasis on elementary school families. The information gathered will be used to develop core values and guiding principles for the process. The district is contracting with Critical Data to complete the telephone survey and parents/guardians are encouraged to participate if you are called.

The district’s Boundary Review Task Force (BRTF) will be convened later this fall. An application to serve on the task force will be available on October 1.

There will be opportunities for the general public to provide input mid-way through the boundary review.
