Background

Since the Fall of 2020, the HSD Boundary Committee has analyzed building capacities and growth trends in our District neighborhoods in order to study the impact of the opening of Adventure Elementary and middle school enrollment trends. This past Fall, they reconvened to discuss how to best update our school boundaries to include East Middle School, opening in the Fall of 2023.

Considerations included:

  • Students' current buildings and the programs they are enrolled in

  • How to transition our future middle school population with the least number of building changes while keeping their elementary school populations together.

See "Full Considerations" below for a detailed list of considerations.

Recommendations were presented to the school board and the public was invited to offer input at three regular board meetings. Following a board vote on February 14th, 2022 the latest middle school boundaries were established. View the E-Mailer Sent Home to Families
