After the passage of the $619.7 million bond in May 2018, Salem-Keizer Public Schools started planning for construction. In order to utilize the additional capacity that will be added to many schools through bond construction and to help ensure the safe progression of construction, the Salem-Keizer Board of Directors reviewed the boundary change process at its July 24, 2018 meeting.

The boundary adjustment process was facilitated by FLO Analytics, a consulting firm with expertise in data analysis and experience in assisting school districts with boundary changes. The process included a Boundary Review Task Force (BRTF) that met nearly weekly from the end of September until mid-December 2018. The BRTF is made up of about 45 volunteer representatives from all high school neighborhoods. Adam Kohler and Adriana Miranda served as Co-chairs of the Task Force.

The BRTF’s goal was to create a recommendation for adjusted boundaries that balances enrollments across all high school feeder systems, prepares schools for growth and identifies implications for the 2018 bond program. The BRTF’s work resulted in a recommendation report for adjusted boundaries presented to the School Board at the January 15, 2019 meeting. The School Board approved the Task Force proposal and adopted the new boundaries at its February 12, 2019 meeting.
