Phase II of the Student Assignment Review focuses on aligning home school attendance boundaries and high school feeder patterns with the Goals and Guiding Principles for Student Assignment established by the Board of Education.
Identify Criteria - Based on feedback from more than 2000 community members, CMS identified four metrics to assess each of the district’s 138 home-school boundaries and how they aligned with the Board’s goals. The four metrics are:
Evaluate Boundaries and High School Feeder Patterns - CMS staff applied the criteria to all existing boundaries and high school feeder patterns to identify those that least support the Board’s Goals. This process was informed by our Guiding Principles for Student Assignment which require that CMS continue to assign students to a home-school in proximity to their home address and consider the following factors:
Develop Proposals - CMS staff developed options for new boundaries and high school feeder patterns that better support the Board’s Goals.
