• Short List of Elementary Attendance Boundary Options
    Updated 10/12/2015
     
    The Elementary Attendance Boundary Review committee continues to review options for potential boundaries for the district's elementary schools beginning in the fall of 2016 when Elementary School #6 opens. The committee has eliminated three of the original options under consideration. Criteria being considered in developing a recommendation (in no particular order):
    • Manages enrollment over the next three years with the addition of the new school;
    • Maximizes the number of families that can attend elementary school in the area families reside (i.e. North Bend, Snoqualmie, or Fall City);
    • Minimizes disruption to special programs;
    • Ensures enough classroom capacity at each elementary school to accommodate the new state requirement of Full-Day Kindergarten for all students;
    • Ensures enough capacity at each school to implement the state legislature's class size reduction targets in grade K-3.
    Please review the two remaining elementary attendance boundary options, still under consideration for the 2016-17 school year. For both options there is a PDF map (that can be enlarged), a brief description of some of the changes, and a table with projected classroom availability at each school for the next three years.
     
    After reviewing both options, please use the link to Survey #2 at the bottom of the page to provide feedback. The Elementary Boundary Review committee will review this feedback, along with input that will be collected at the community meetings on October 20 and 21, as they prepare a final recommendation for new elementary attendance boundaries.

    Regarding the capacity projection tables below, a "0" indicates that a school is essentially at its anticipated program capacity.

    Middle School "Feeder" Opportunity:  Both options above support a consistent future middle school "feeder" pattern. In the fall of 2019, the District will return to three middle schools; the Freshman Campus will be converted back into Snoqualmie Middle School when the new Mount Si High School opens. At that time, both options still under consideration will allow for two elementary schools to "feed" into one middle school.The Elementary Boundary Review committee has been studying this topic and is likely to recommend to the School Board the following, beginning in the fall of 2019:
    • Elem 6 and FCES students to attend Chief Kanim Middle School (CKMS)
    • OES and NBES students to attend Twin Falls Middle School (TFMS)
    • SES and CVES students to attend Snoqualmie Middle School (SMS)
     
    Survey #2 was available October 12-23. It is now closed.
