Due to population declines throughout the district, the Population Analysis Committee (PAC) will be studying various regions over the next 5-10 years.
The PAC had initiated two studies in 2022. The Board of Education approved the continuation of study number one in their June 2022 meeting and then in December the board unanimously voted in favor of the final proposal. This study, referred to as the Van Winkle / 700 East Corridor Elementary Study, includes the closes includes the closure of Millcreek Elementary, Spring Lane Elementary, and Twin Peaks Elementary along with boundary adjustments to offset the closures and strengthen remaining schools along the 700 East Corridor. Changes go into effect July 1, 2023 for the 2023-2024 school year.
Electronic versions of the new boundary maps are now available to the public. Each school affected by the boundary changes / school closures will also have a poster of the new boundaries outlining the changed area. These paper maps have a QR code directing patrons to the same electronic boundary maps.
School will continue as normal throughout the rest of the 2022-2023 school year. A transitioning committee has already been formed and is meeting regularly. From now through the beginning of 2023-2024 they will be working with each affected school administration, PTA, Community Council and pertinent district personnel to ensure a smooth and successful transition.
