Elementary Boundary Change Process Gets Underway

Learn More about the Elementary School Planning Process and Share Your Input in a Questionnaire by Nov. 24

Community members can get information resources and participate in a questionnaire about two proposals that explore moving some elementary schools to address challenges that APS will face when beginning the process in Fall 2020 to develop new boundaries for Sept. 2021. The proposals may be potentially revised as APS gathers stakeholder ideas and suggestions through a community engagement process, underway now until School Board action on Feb. 6, 2020. The questionnaire is open through Nov. 24, 2019. Changes would take effect in Sept. 2021.

  • Find more information—including the boundary challenges, proposals to move schools, FAQs, community engagement timeline and more at APS Engage
  • View a video and an Information Session that explain the proposals and address some common questions
  • Share your input using a bilingual community questionnaire available through November 24 at APS Engage 

View the Nov. 6 School Board Work Session on the 2021-30 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), which will address future school infrastructure needs.
