Middle School Boundary Adjustment Advisory Committee Update

Superintendent Grotting will hold a listening session with public testimony regarding the Middle School Boundary Adjustment Committee’s recommendation on Thursday, October 29 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. The meeting will be held via Zoom. The session won’t be livestreamed but will be recorded and posted online.

Anyone interested in providing oral public testimony to Superintendent Grotting must register to do so by completing the public testimony form on the Middle School Boundary Adjustment webpage. The form will be available on October 19 at 9 a.m. through October 23 at 5 p.m. Participants will have two minutes each to share their comments. This will allow for approximately 60 individuals to participate. If more than 60 people register to comment, two to four individuals will be selected at random from each elementary school attendance boundary area to ensure equal participation from across the district.

Individuals selected to participate in the Zoom listening session will be contacted by district staff with meeting information and public testimony guidelines on October 27.
