Proposed attendance boundary changes in north area

On September 21, the Parkway School Board reviewed a proposal to change attendance boundaries in the north area for the 2012-13 school year. Several north area elementary schools have exceeded their enrollment capacity while other schools nearby have room for more students. The north area schools involved include:

  • Craig Elementary
  • McKelvey Elementary
  • Ross Elementary
  • Northeast Middle
  • North High

Under the proposal, all students currently attending central area schools would remain at their current school.  Some students from the north attendance area would be reassigned to the central area. Those students would attend River Bend Elementary, Central Middle or Central High.

The changes as proposed will affect the following neighborhoods in the manner indicated below.

Moving from Ross Elementary to River Bend Elementary:

  • Old Farm Estates (and the adjacent homes on the northwest side of Amiot)
  • Woodland Pointe

Moving from McKelvey Elementary to River Bend Elementary:

  • Pheasant Run Apartment Complex
  • Royal Pines Condominiums

Moving from Craig Elementary to Ross Elementary:

  • Driftwood Place
  • Pavilion (only the area west of Bennington)
  • West Pointe (only the area west of Bennington)

A website has been set up to provide a number of resources for families who may be affected by these changes.  For answers to frequently asked questions, a schedule of public meetings, detailed maps of the proposed boundaries and background information, visit the Parkway website at: www.parkwayschools.net/boundaries.
