R
EASONS
for a comprehensive boundary change process:1.
 
The Salem-Keizer School District is in the final phase of a process to construct four new schools (3elementary and 1 middle)
as the “new school facilities”
part of the $242.1 million construction bondapproved by Salem-Keizer voters in November 2008. One of those elementary schools currently isunder construction off Madras Street SE in South Salem and will open in September 2012.2.
 
The new South Salem elementary school will provide much-needed overcrowding relief throughoutthe southern side of the school district. Several schools currently are crowded or over-capacity orhave been in recent years, including Lee, Pringle, Salem Heights, Schirle, and Sumpter elementaryschools, as well as Judson MS and South Salem HS. In South Salem Study Area schools, 23portable classrooms are in use to help accommodate large and growing student populations.3.
 
The South Salem boundary change process will adjust school attendance area boundaries (andschool feeder systems), balance enrollments, and make better use of available classroom space,preparing South Salem students, schools, and neighborhoods for the opening of the new elementaryschool next fall.
