School Board updates number of allowed transfers
With the closure of state-wide open enrollment, districts across the state are updating their inter-district transfer parameters. The school board makes annual decisions regarding whether to accept students into the district through the inter-district transfer process, and if so, how many and to which schools. The board also makes an annual decision regarding requests for inter-district transfer from the District. At the Jan. 28 WL-WV school board work session, the board to open for inter-district transfers coming into the district for students who live outside the WL-WV boundary who are currently attending school in the district (students who move outside the district boundary may stay at the WL-WV school they attended before they moved and siblings of students who live outside the district boundary but attend school in WL-WV. The district won't be accepting any new families from outside the district boundary, including students who attended a district preschool. Preschools are not part of the K-12 system and funded by tuition, meaning they are open to anyone even if they live beyond the district boundary. Another restriction will not allow students transferring into the district mid-year to attend Lowrie Primary School, Trillium Creek Primary School, Rosemont Ridge Middle School or Arts and Technology High School. The board also raised the number of students allowed to transfer out of the district to 25 for the coming year.
Bond Summit set for Feb. 23
The West Linn-Wilsonville community will have the opportunity to hear and discuss the district's proposed capital improvement plans at a Bond Summit Feb. 23 at Meridian Creek Middle School. This is an opportunity for the school board to hear community feedback on the capital projects that may end up on a potential capital bond. Because space is limited, parents are asked to get in touch with their children's schools about attending.
