Lake Oswego School District to hold open house on elementary boundary review
The Lake Oswego School District will hold its final meeting this week about elementary boundary lines that are set to be approved in early March.
The district plans to revamp boundary lines between Lake Grove and Oak Creek Elementary schools to create balance as the student enrollment increases. The new boundary lines will impact enrollment at both schools. On Wednesday, Feb. 16 from 5:30-7 p.m. the district's Elementary Boundary Review Committee will host a virtual open house to present the latest iterations of the two line drafts before opening up the session to listen to community feedback in 20 minute sessions.
The new boundary lines will establish what school's students will attend starting in the 2022-2023 academic year. And the district only anticipates a small change between the two schools.
"As our enrollment is going back up towards pre-pandemic levels, we need to move forward with adjusting our elementary boundaries to create balance," said Superintendent Jennifer Schiele at the Feb. 2 school board meeting. "We don't anticipate this changing any other elementary or secondary schools."
Community members are also invited to provide anonymous written feedback in the survey posted on losdschools.org/ElementaryBoundaryReview2022.
