On November 9th, the District’s Attendance Boundary Committee held its second meeting. During the first part of the meeting, Davis Demographics provided information about factors that impact attendance boundaries and how adjusting boundary lines impacts available capacity at each school.
Davis Demographics also shared an elementary scenario, middle school scenario and high school scenario to consider regarding possible adjustments to the current attendance boundaries. These scenarios are NOT official recommendations from the District Board, staff or Davis Demographics. But, rather, they were something to consider in order to foster dialog and conversation.
Following the presentation by Davis Demographics, Committee members had an opportunity to work together to provide their own possible recommendations.
The recommendations submitted are being examined for common themes. Draft maps will be generated and shared with Committee members at its next meeting on December 7th.
As a reminder, these meetings are closed to the public. However, if you have any specific questions or concerns regarding the Attendance Boundary Committee, you may submit them HERE.
