Advisory Committees

Here you will find information on the district's various Advisory Committees.

Attendance Boundary Committee

The Attendance Boundary Committee would provide community and parent involvement in redrawing attendance boundaries to accommodate new growth or shifts in its student population. The committee would review the supporting data and work to propose possible zoning plans.

Membership of the ABC will consist of two representatives from each elementary and middle school campus and three representatives from each junior high and high school campus.

The campus administrator will select campus representatives with the entire committee approved by the Board. Appropriate central administrators will serve as resources as needed. District information and the Board’s charge for rezoning considerations would be presented to the entire committee. Only representatives from campuses affected by rezoning and their feeder schools would be involved in making the rezoning recommendations to be presented to the Board. Current Board members cannot serve on the Attendance Boundary Committee.
