The 2016-17 Attendance Boundaries Committee attended its second meeting on Tuesday, November 1, 2016. The presentation covered a review of the Board of Education redistricting guidelines and parameters as well as an extensive work session using an excel calculator to explore the enrollment impact of moving or not moving various parcels of the district to the new high school or other existing schools. The intent of this session was for the committee to understand some of the dynamics involved in reducing enrollment in each of the high schools. The goal of this meeting was not to create solutions and proposed options for consideration but instead to gain understanding. The committee reviewed conceptual maps to create their understanding. The conceptual maps in the presentation are not proposals. The Frequently Asked Questions page will be updated throughout the process as questions and answers are available. A demographic and enrollment update will be presented to the Board of Education on November 10, 2016. The ABC will hold its next meeting on December 7.
