LPS Long-Range Planning Committee invites you to give your feedback on the most recent elementary and middle school boundary possible options
Families of LPS elementary students who attend schools east of Broadway and families of LPS middle school students who attend schools east of Santa Fe:
The Littleton Public Schools Board of Education recently charged the district Long-Range Planning Committee to continue its review of elementary school boundaries east of Broadway and also review boundaries for middle schools east of Santa Fe. A subset of the original Long-Range Planning Committee is meeting this fall to review new data from the demographer, Western Demographics, which includes information on children aged birth to 4 along with the extensive, accurate data already reviewed by the entire Long-Range Planning Committee last year. The charge for this group is to bring two or three recommendations to the Board of Education in October that will better balance (right size) enrollment at Newton, Powell, and Euclid middle schools as well as all elementary schools east of Broadway, using the Board’s and Committee’s long-established standards and values when possible.
Taking all available data into account, Western Demographics provided possible options for the Committee’s consideration. The Committee spent its August meetings reviewing these possible options, ruling some out, and identifying two elementary and two middle school possible options to ask the community to weigh in on.
The Committee is hosting three identical Community Town Hall Input Sessions where attendees can drop in to learn about these possible options, ask questions, and provide feedback.
It’s important to remember that the boundary scenarios are possible options only. The Long-Range Planning Committee will take all feedback into account before finalizing its recommendations to the Board.
After reviewing all feedback, the Long-Range Planning Committee will provide its findings and recommendations to the Board of Education October 12, 2023. The Board has emphasized its desire to make decisions regarding boundaries by the end of October 2023–likely during the October 26, 2023 Board meeting - to give families as much time as possible to plan ahead.
Learn more about the ongoing work of the Long-Range Planning Committee on the district website. All materials reviewed by the Committee are available on the website as part of the Committee’s commitment to transparency. It is important to note that this includes possible boundary options no longer being considered by the Committee.
