Bell Elementary Relief
At the November 11 Board of Education meeting, the Board discussed the four boundary proposals and developed a plan on how they will move forward. Based on feedback from parents and staff, and after further reviewing the numbers, a decision was made to hold on the shift of Glenwood Hills from Bell to Walnut Creek. They will further review other options for relieving Bell or they may hold and see how the growth at Bell progresses. One of the goals of the proposed changes was to keep neighborhoods together. After hearing the input from parents it was determined that Glenwood Hills can walk to Bell and they are seen as a part of that neighborhood. Therefore, moving this area does not accomplish the overall goals.
We want to thank all parents whom have provided feedback through this process. Your input has been and will continue to be valued.
The Papillion La Vista Board of Education is considering adjusting boundaries in four different places. The goals of the proposed changes include:
- Provide a great education for all students
- Manage the high growth areas
- Balance enrollment in mature neighborhoods
- Keep neighborhoods together feeding their neighborhood school
- Provide relief to high enrollment schools
There are four proposals currently being considered. Each of the proposals are designed to meet some or all of the targeted goals. Currently, PLCS is in the process of meeting with parents directly impacted in each of the proposals. The goal of these meetings is to collect feedback and suggestion from those directly impacted. Once all of the meetings are completed, the Board will review the data collected and make a decision on the next steps. That first discussion will occur at the Board of Education meeting on October 28 at 6:00 pm in the Central Office. No action will be taken at that meeting. If the Board decides to proceed with action a vote may be taken at the November 11 meeting.
A description of the proposal and the initial data collected is found on the left.
