On November 5, 2019, the District voters approved a comprehensive building bond for $180.9 million. The funds support the construction of four new schools. As part of this three-year construction process, school attendance boundaries need to be adjusted to balance our District's capacity with the additional new schools.
The boundary adjustments will become effective for the start of school in the 2022-2023 school year. The Superintendent recommends the School Board approve the boundary adjustments no later than September 2021, so families have approximately one year to adjust as necessary.
An Advisory Committee has been working on attendance boundary options. Now, the District is issuing a survey to collect feedback around a series of boundary options. Please note: no decisions have been made, there is no preferred option, and this survey is intended to encourage discussion and feedback. The Advisory Committee will evaluate feedback collected through this online survey from the community and recommend option(s) to the Superintendent.
If you have additional questions or concerns after completing this survey, you will have the chance to sign up for a focus group meeting to discuss these questions.
The survey is available online at rochesterschools.org/boundaries until April 20, 2021, at 8 PM. RPS families will also receive a survey link on Wednesday, April 7 via Skylert email. Staff will receive a link via after the school board meeting concludes in the weekly school board meeting update.
