2021-2022 Redistricting Options

Olentangy Schools will open its 16th elementary school on North Road, off of Peachblow Road, west of Piatt Road in August 2021. The opening of the 16th elementary school combined with continued rapid growth across the district creates the need for attendance boundaries to be adjusted across several elementary and middle school buildings.

Superintendent Raiff is charged with two major responsibilities by the state - to assign staff and assign students to buildings. A Superintendent’s Committee has been formed to address the attendance boundaries. The committee is comprised of 14 community members, who have spent the past three months examining our current attendance boundaries, feeder patterns and enrollment projections, using the Board of Education approved Redistricting Guidelines. The committee also works closely with the district’s partner, Cooperative Strategies, who provides the district enrollment projections, planning units and GIS mapping tools.

The committee has developed several options, which can be viewed at the links below, for your feedback. The Superintendent’s Committee will review all feedback and ultimately provide a recommendation to Superintendent Raiff to make a final decision on the new attendance boundaries. Mr. Raiff’s final redistricting decision will be shared at the Thursday, March 25, Board of Education meeting.

It is anticipated that a relatively small number of students will be moved during this year’s redistricting efforts. In the next 2-3 years, the district will open middle school 6 and elementary 17 creating the need at that time to enact a much more extensive redistricting plan.

In a rapidly growing school district, such as Olentangy, redistricting is a frequent reality. When reviewing the options and concepts, consider the bigger picture of balancing enrollment, easing overcrowding and opening a new building. It is essential that feedback is provided using the corresponding link after viewing the video in its entirety. Three Q & A sessions will be held on Saturday, February 20, for any questions not answered in the videos. Members of the redistricting committee will be available to answer your questions in real time on Saturday. These sessions will also be recorded for those unable to attend.
