Your guide to Columbia Public Schools Redistricting 2011

A resource from the Columbia Missourian

Confused about how all this redistricting will work? We can help. If you have questions about where your child could attend school, when the changes will take effect or how your neighborhood could be split up, check out: ColumbiaMissourian.com/packages/school-redistricting-2011/
A few quick facts:
n Three

map scenarios, A, B and C, are being proposed for the boundary lines, including scenarios for intermediate and high school attendance areas. Some residents will see no difference in where their children go to school among the three maps. Others will find that the three plans propose three different high schools.
n Grades

5 through 9 will be most affected by the changes. Today’s seventh-graders will be the first ninth-grade class at Battle High School, set to open in August 2013.
n Once

Battle opens, high schools will be grades 9-12, and middle schools and junior highs will be reorganized into intermediate schools, grades 6-8.
n The

secondary enrollment planning committee, charged with redrawing the boundaries, will present two scenarios to the School Board in February 2012, based on the feedback collected at the community forums held this month.
n Community

forums will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Nov. 3, 8, 9, 10, 15, 16 and 17 in school media centers. Specifics can be found at the link above.
n Direct

any comments to the district at www.columbia.k12.mo.us/scenarios/
