2019 Middle School Attendance Area Planning
DECEMBER 9, 2019 - SCHOOL BOARD MAKES DECISION ON MIDDLE SCHOOL ATTENDANCE AREAS
The Shakopee School Board made a decision on December 9, 2019 in relation to Middle School Attendance Areas for the 2020-21 school year. The district’s administration recommended Scenario 106 and the school board approved that recommendation.
Starting in the 2020-21 school year, students that will be in 6th, 7th and 8th grade will have new attendance areas. This means a number of students will be attending a different middle school than they would have with the previous attendance areas.
The board also approved new intra-district transfer guidelines. The guidelines are intended to support families in this transition while also maintaining the goals of balancing our middle school populations. Additional information and forms will be available later this week.
The decision to implement new attendance areas was made after a significant amount of study, and conversation with families and community members. The primary goal of the new attendance areas is to create sustained, balanced enrollment between East and West Middle Schools.
