Boundary Review - High School

Join us for the High School Boundary Review Community Open House
Reminder: here are the current elementary, middle school and high school boundaries in effect. The high school boundaries are what is being reviewed to be in effect for fall of 2021. 

High School Boundary Review Process: Which Students Go Where?

Our population continues to grow and will change between now and fall of 2021 when Ridgeline High School opens. Because of this, boundaries will be set by the School Board in January of 2020.

Public Input: 

A committee of community members, selected from a number of applicants, and staff has begun work in fall of 2019 and will take direct input from the community through public forums.

A community survey of 700 parents and guardians was conducted last spring by Critical Data, on behalf of CVSD, regarding insight into the High School Boundary Review. 

A boundary committee will be selected from community applicants and staff by August of 2019. Throughout the process, the Boundary Review Committee will work with current and future data to consider for boundary changes.

There will be three Community Open Houses to share boundary adjustments with the public and receive input.

Guiding the Process:

Core values serve as guiding principles for the boundary review committee throughout the boundary review process. These are developed from Board policy 3131 Attendance Area Changes, and from insights gained from community surveys, land use studies, and a student enrollment assessment and review. Guiding principles are not prioritized and are all important to consider.

When considering boundary revisions the committee will consider, to the extent possible, the following core values:

  • Maintain a district-wide perspective by considering growth trends and enrollment projections
  • Develop new boundaries that work to balance target school capacities across all schools
  • Consider impact to the smallest number of families
  • Make efforts to maintain neighborhood schools and the feeder system
  • Minimize disruptions and impacts to special programs or special populations (e.g., homeless youth, free-and-reduced lunch programs, special education, Title programs)
  • Maximize proximity to home/walkability (e.g., not having to crossbusy streets and consider natural boundaries)
  • Consider transportation impacts, and work towards limiting the amount of time required on a bus
Adopted Ridgeline HS 2021 Student Transition Plan:
This transition plan was adopted by the School Board March of 2017 in order to provide a student transition plan to our Central Valley School District families, so that they could plan accordingly.
