Guiding Principles

    • Maintain existing feeder patterns – keep students in existing feeder group
    • Minimize the numbers of schools and students impacted by boundary adjustments
    • Minimize changes for families who have been impacted by past boundary adjustments
    • Make adjustments for the long term to maintain boundaries for as long as possible
    • Consider the transportation costs associated with any boundary adjustment
    • Maintain existing neighborhoods
    • Create an appeal/transfer process to allow students to stay at their current school, even if their neighborhood is moved to a new school through the boundary adjustment process
    • Consider transfer requests to and from other District schools
    • Consider equity in the boundary adjustment process

    It is understood that some of these Guiding Principles can be mutually exclusive.
