Long Range Planning Committee announces updates to recommended attendance boundaries for 2020-21 school year
Additional recommendation made based on public feedback
The Long Range Planning Committee, which consists of parents from each elementary and middle school in the district, has announced an additional version of its recommended attendance boundaries for the 2020-21 school year.
Committee members will present the additional recommendation to the Board of Education at its Jan. 13 meeting.
This recommendation modifies areas east and north of the Muskogee Turnpike to continue attending Highland Park Elementary and Oneta Ridge Middle School. Students living between the Muskogee Turnpike and State Highway 51 would still attend Elementary 16 but would go to Oneta Ridge Middle School.
Those changes were made due to public comments received concerning travel distance and road conditions, primarily to Childers Middle School.
As a result, two sections along 71st Street would change from Highland Park to Timber Ridge, the district’s second-newest elementary school which opened in 2017. Other adjustments were also made to the recommendation based on public feedback.
The proposed changes to the boundaries were necessary due to the district’s continued enrollment growth and the construction of Broken Arrow’s 16th elementary school, which will open in August.
Parents and community members are encouraged to submit feedback and questions through a survey.
