Contiguous boundaries: Attempt to maintain contiguous school boundaries without using satellite attendance areas.Respect neighborhoods: Avoid dividing easily recognized “neighborhoods” or identified “developments” or “sub- divisions” unless it is necessary to meet other guidelines. Whenever possible and practical use major highways, railroads, rivers, and streams as natural boundaries.Proximity to schools: While it is recognized that all students cannot be assigned to their closest school, consider students proximity to other schools when creating school boundaries. 7
Modify feeder systems: In order to maximize facility use and establish reasonable numbers of students at each site, consider the use of 6 middle school feeder systems instead of 5. This would allow smaller, more instructionally suited middle schools and less dependence on mobile classrooms.Stay within enrollment capacities: Unless it is likely that a school enrollment will be declining, assign students to the four high schools in a way that their enrollments are under established capacities.Consider anticipated growth: Enrollment growth patterns should be taken into consideration, where feasible, to ensure that anticipated growth will not adversely impact one school significantly more than the others.Enrollment balance: In keeping with the intent of SB612, attempt to balance the percentage of academic and economic populations at each middle and high school. 8
