New boundaries to take effect for 2018-19 school year

Parents provided their input on proposed attendance boundaries for the new Thunder Vista P-8 under construction in Broomfield.

More than 100 people attended three boundary open houses held in early October. The open houses gave parents the opportunity to review and ask questions about three proposed elementary attendance boundaries and two middle school boundaries.

The new boundaries are primarily needed because of the construction of the new school but the proposed scenarios also impact existing boundaries for surrounding elementary and middle schools.

After viewing the scenarios, attendees could then use an online survey to rate how well the proposed scenarios align with five boundary guiding principles identified through the work of the district’s Long Range Planning Advisory Committee (LRPAC) in April 2017.

The scenarios and survey were also posted at

The feedback from the boundary open houses was shared with LRPAC members in October where they were asked to weigh public input in a final recommendation to the Superintendent on attendance boundaries.

The new boundaries are expected to be announced in early December and take effect for the start of the 2018-19 school year.
