The Medford School District (MSD) is opening a third middle school in the fall of 2023, Oakdale Middle School! At that time, all sixth graders will move to middle schools, offering exciting opportunities for students, and freeing up several classrooms at each of our elementary schools. This means we will need new middle school attendance zones to determine where students will attend middle school, starting in August 2023.

The Attendance Zoning Committee, which is made up of parents, guardians, community members, and staff, has been working hard creating middle school boundary scenarios. Now they need your feedback! Starting next Tuesday, April 12, you can view the scenarios online here or in person at one of our Gallery Walks. These are not final in any way. After viewing the scenarios, you will be able to share your thoughts on a feedback form. Feedback will be analyzed by the committee, which will make a recommendation to the Medford School Board on May 5. The Board plans to adopt attendance boundaries at the May 19 Board Meeting. Both meetings will provide the public an opportunity to comment before the Board.

We appreciate your feedback and engagement in this important process!
