The Northshore School District will open a new comprehensive high school in the north end of the district in the fall of 2017, in conjunction with the implementation of grade reconfiguration—moving grade levels to K-5 elementary schools, 6-8 middle schools and 9-12 high schools.

Boundaries must be adjusted districtwide in the fall of 2017 to create a new high school feeder pattern and balance enrollment across schools and feeder patterns.

The school district is launching a survey to gather community input on the instructional, demographic, operational and geographic considerations the Enrollment Demographics Task Force (EDTF) will use to develop a draft boundary proposal during the 2014-15 school year.

The survey runs through 4:30 p.m. on June 9.

The school board has directed the EDTF to develop a draft boundary adjustment plan to be submitted to the school board in the spring of 2015 for review. The EDTF will submit a final recommendation to the board in the spring of 2016 for final consideration.

The boundary considerations survey and additional information about the new high school, grade reconfiguration and the EDTF are available on the district website, www.nsd.org.
