Fall 2023 Redistricting Scope DRAFT.pdf
Summary: In response to current overcrowding at Baker-Butler Elementary and planned developments along the 29N corridor, a new elementary school is planned. Based on the timing of available funding, the school will open for the 2029-30 school year. In the meantime, Baker-Butler will need more immediate capacity relief. With more than 750 students, it is the second largest elementary school in the division and is projected to continue to grow. In addition to Baker-Butler, two other northern feeder pattern schools are also experiencing enrollment challenges: Woodbrook is modestly overenrolled; Stony Point is under enrolled and is currently the smallest school in the division. To take the most comprehensive approach, the entire northern feeder pattern should be studied for potential boundary changes.

Enclosure 1 includes the proposed scope of a two-phased redistricting study and an advisory committee.
Recommendation: This item is for information only this evening, and will be on the consent agenda on August 10 for action.

Staff recommends that the School Board approve the study objectives and details as outlined in the attachment and direct the Superintendent to convene a redistricting advisory committee to conduct the study beginning in September 2023 for implementation beginning in the 2024/25 school year.
