The Boundary Committee met on February 17. During this two-hour meeting, the committee broke out into small workgroups where committee members offered potential solutions to the consultants to balance capacity and socio-economic status in elementary schools across the District. Utilizing GIS software, the consultants were able to provide previews of the committees' options. RPS support team members were available to answer committee member questions during this process.
This was the first work session for the committee, focusing on only the elementary school boundaries. The committee did not finalize any of their initial options and expressed a desire for more time to refine their work. The committee will meet again in March to continue this work and to begin working on middle school boundary options.
The committees' goal is to bring forward elementary and middle school options for public input in April.
