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 take action on the proposed boundaries for the new elementary school. The Board will be voting on the proposal at the November 25 meeting at 6:00 pm in the central office. The proposed boundaries include everything west of 114th street and south of Highway 370 and the Sumptur Crossing Development. The goal is to open the new school in the fall of 2020 as an open school.
We want to thank all parents whom have provided feedback through this process. Please know you will still have the opportunity to share your feedback prior to the Board vote on November 25. Your input has been and will continue to be valued. The next step after boundaries are finalized will be to select a Principal for the new school. The principal will then reach out to all of you to help with the organization of the PTO, the selection of the school mascot and many school engagement opportunities.
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.
