Message from CFAC Co-chairs

Dear Families & Community Members,

The community-led Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC) asked for public feedback on an initial draft boundary plan from March 10 to April 20. Thank you for your feedback in 10 community meetings and more than 600 survey responses!

We read all your comments, listened to many ideas and held a boundary design session for the community. We met April 25 and May 9 to revise the CFAC boundary plan to address as many of your suggestions as possible. We met again May 23 to finalize our recommendations to the school board. On June 6, we presented a recommended boundary plan and supplemental considerations to the school board. 

The school board voted to approve the recommended boundaries at its June 27 meeting. 

The new school boundary plan will take effect fall 2019—when our two new schools open and sixth grade moves to middle school.

Rose Clark and Aaron Garcia
CFAC Co-chairs & community members

Things to Know

  • Families living in boundary change areas will receive a letter by mail in late fall 2018, alerting them to the upcoming changes.
  • Existing and future school boundaries do not affect enrollment in schools of choice.
  • Coming this fall will be an interactive map to help families check where they will go to school in 2019-20. The map will be similar to our existing 2018-19 boundary map tool.
