USD 383 panel trying to redraw boundaries on time

By Bryan Richardson

The USD 383 redistricting committee is running out of time to meet its deadline for delivering recommendation to the school board.

The district’s lines are being redrawn for the 2012-13 school year to bring more students to Lee Elementary, which has expanded its main building capacity by 315 students and added 14 classrooms.

During Thursday’s redistricting committee meeting, Associate Supt. Bob Seymour said there has been a lot of discussion and feedback, but it’s now time for more decisiveness. There are only two meetings — Jan. 5 and 12 — before the committee is scheduled to have a recommendation for the board on Jan. 18.

“We need to make some decisions really quickly,” Seymour said.

The committee took the first steps toward a final decision by rating two new maps (Maps Q1 and R1) along with two revised favorites (Maps L2 and N6) from the previous meetings.

Although the committee members’ ratings were analyzed at the meeting, Map Q1 became a favorite among parents. Parents and the committee commented about how the map didn’t move as many students as previous maps.

According to Map Q1, the following neighborhoods would be assigned to each school (with additions in parenthesis):

Amanda Arnold: Arbor, CiCo Park, Claflin West, Lee Mill, Miller Ranch, S Anderson, Sharingbrook, West Kimball, West Bank.
