Public Feedback Session Dates Set for Boundary

boundary_icon_colorThe public is invited to give feedback on boundary options at three public sessions:

  • Sat., Nov. 8 at 1 p.m. at the Learning Resource Center
  • Tues., Nov. 11 at 7:30 p.m. at Valley Southwoods Freshman High School
  • Thurs., Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Learning Resource Center

During these open forums 2-3 options for district boundary changes will be presented and the public will have an opportunity to discuss and provide feedback to the boundary study committee and district administration as they prepare to submit a recommendation to the school board.

The district began its study of trends in student enrollment and review of the location of school boundaries earlier this school year because:

  • The cities we serve – West Des Moines and parts of Clive, Urbandale and Windsor Heights – have continued to age and populations have changed.
  • Some of our schools have seen growing student enrollment, causing more students to be placed at buildings other than their neighborhood school in order to keep class sizes at 26-28 students.
  • Phenix Early Childhood Center was closed, which necessitates boundary adjustments to accommodate all resident Phenix students to be able to attend Hillside.

Data & Reports Being Reviewed By Committee
