Redistricting Overview

In preparation for the opening of Hopewell Elementary and Walden Middle School for the 2019-2020 school year, and in order to balance our very different high school enrollments, we will be redistricting all of our attendance boundaries, from elementary through high school. Redistricting will help us continue to be one of the best districts around by protecting our low class sizes and making sure we can balance our resources.

Redistricting committee meetings are open to the public, if you want to observe them. We will also host public input meetings and provide an online feedback tool to get your thoughts on the committee's ideas before the Board sets the new attendance areas. Watch for more information about those opportunities later in the fall. The Board plans to make its decision in December.

School Start Times 2019-2020

As the Park Hill School District has grown, it has become more and more difficult for our school-bus service to keep and hire enough bus drivers. This has led to problems in the level of service they are able to provide to Park Hill and our families.

To help solve this problem, we will follow in the steps of the other large school districts in our region and across the state by adjusting our start times. This might mean that some of our schools start earlier and some schools start later.

This would allow us to run another route each morning and afternoon. As a result, we would need less bus drivers, allowing our bus service to provide better service to our families while safely transporting our students. This would also significantly reduce the amount of taxpayer dollars required to run the buses.

After the Board votes on redistricting in December, the district will use the information about numbers of students from each area going to each school to determine how to add the extra routes. We will also ask for parent feedback on different options for the new start-time schedules. Using the student data and the parent feedback, we will determine the new start times and announce them in the spring.

The new schedules would take effect in the 2019-2020 school year.
