A task force of parents and staff is scheduled to begin meeting in September to develop a recommendation for reconfiguring elementary school attendance areas in preparation for the opening of the district’s 19th elementary school in fall 2017.
The task force will include two parent representatives from each of the six potentially impacted elementary schools and one parent each from Rosemount and Scott Highlands middle schools. The six elementary schools are Cedar Park, Diamond Path, Highland, Parkview, Rosemount and Shannon Park. The new school is being built on the southwest corner of County Road 46 and Diamond Path in Lakeville in what is now Parkview’s attendance area. The other five elementary schools all border the Parkview attendance area.
Task force members are scheduled to meet four times in September to develop their recommendation. After that, there will be multiple opportunities for community input in October before the recommendation for attendance-area adjustments is presented to the board for action in November.
