Boundaries

Rochester Public Schools (RPS) passed a referendum in 2019, which funded four schools in order to address our capacity issues. Our student population was growing and we needed new schools. Now that our school construction projects are near completion and are opening in August 2022 for the 2022-2023 school year, we need to shift our school attendance boundaries so that students can spread out across the district and fill our new schools.

The school attendance boundary adjustment process was led by Cooperative Strategies, a national consulting firm already familiar with the District. As part of the process, Cooperative Strategies worked with a representative committee, provided opportunities for public comment and feedback about multiple proposals, and provided a final recommendation to the school board on behalf of the boundary committee. This process took place between May 2020 and June 2021. You can read More information about this comprehensive process.

We know that changing schools can be emotional for parents, guardians, and students. In meeting the goals of the boundary changes (balancing the enrollment at each school), the district’s boundary advisory committee focused on minimizing disruption to families. One way we are hoping to minimize disruption is to allow our students in their final year (Grade 5 or 8) to finish their time at their current school and by allowing our high school students to stay at their current school (pending capacity). Families that are impacted by attendance boundary adjustments will be notified by their schools on December 1, 2021. These families will be asked to complete a brief survey by December 10. If you are curious whether or not attendance boundary changes apply to you, use the School Locator to locate your address and see which school(s) your children are assigned to beginning in the 2022-2023 School Year.
