​School Board approves review, revisions of middle school boundaries districtwide

Tacoma Public Schools will launch a boundary review and adjustment process in September to redraw middle school boundaries to accommodate the future reopening of a new Hunt Middle School.

As part of this boundary review process, the district also will rebalance enrollment among middle schools across the community.

Recruiting has begun for two parent volunteers from each middle school to serve on a committee with principals and district staff members. Beginning in September, the committee will analyze enrollments and boundary lines and recommend boundary line adjustments to the superintendent and school board by early January.

Before the committee starts its work, an internal technical team will examine enrollment data and trends throughout the entire district and create a “springboard” boundary line adjustment proposal to give the committee a starting point for its discussions, analysis and deliberations.

Any parents who want to nominate themselves for service on the committee can call the Public Information Office at 253-571-1015 to provide their name, middle school and contact information before the August 26 application deadline.

The committee will meet approximately 13 times between September and mid-December.
