Boundary Adjustments

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 is being facilitated by FLO Analytics, a consulting firm with expertise in data analysis and experience in assisting school districts with boundary changes. The process includes a Boundary Review Task Force (BRTF) that will vet an initial staff recommendation, or Springboard scenario, and prepare a report and recommendation to the School Board. The BRTF will hold Public Open House events to collect input from the community.

The BRTF is made up of about 45 volunteer representatives from all high school neighborhoods. Adam Kohler and Adriana Miranda are serving as Co-chairs of the Task Force. The BRTF will present its recommendation for boundary adjustments to the Superintendent at the December 11, 2018 School Board meeting. The School Board is expected to vote on the recommendation at its February 12, 2019 meeting.
