Boundary Process for New Schools

Boundaries Recommendation Process

A Boundary Committee held public boundary forums and considered different scenarios related to long range planning September 2015 to January 2016. The Boundary Committee presented a report to the superintendent with recommendations on boundary scenarios for new schools. The report outlined the recommendations of the majority and minority of the committee to allow the superintendent to make an informed decision.

The superintendent's recommendation about boundary changes was presented to the Board of Education in March 2016.   

Proposed boundaries

For each of the new schools, PSD drew two boundary scenarios for consideration . Note that the boundary area for the proposed Wellington middle school/high school and the boundary area for the proposed Prospect Site middle school/high school are interdependent, meaning that the southern boundary line of the Wellington school boundary will also be the northern boundary line of the Prospect Building Our Future Together Logo school.
 

 

Boundary modifications include:

  • Creation of a new southeastern boundary area for the new elementary school on the southeast side of I-25, pulling students from Bacon, Bethke and Timnath Elementary Schools boundary areas
     
  • Creation of a new eastern boundary area for the new middle school/high school at the Prospect site, east of I-25, pulling students from Preston and Lesher Middle Schools and Fossil Ridge High School boundary areas
     
  • Creation of a new northern boundary area for the new middle school/high school in Wellington, replicating the current Wellington Middle School boundary area, pulling students from the Poudre High School boundary area

 

PSD will strive to ensure a smooth student transition to new schools, which may involve implementing grandfathering practices for current students whose boundary areas are affected. This has yet to be determined.
