Prop R FAQs

"Is it true my student and younger siblings may remain at their current school, even with the restructuring of the attendance boundaries?"

Yes. We continue to work with the KSD Attendance Boundary Committee, community members and the KSD School Board to develop a boundary plan promoting achievement, innovation, connection, and community, while ensuring equitable access and planning for future growth for all students.

This effort will be a multi-year process and families will have the option for their students to remain in their current attendance boundary school. This also includes younger siblings of students currently in school may stay together in the current boundary school.
