Enrollment Priorities Task Force

The Enrollment Priorities Task Force's charge is to develop an enrollment process that supports Board priorities and school boundaries to be enacted in 2019-20 when the new school on N. Whisman Rd (formerly Slater) opens. Enrollment priorities are the policies that determine how students are assigned to schools within boundaries.

The task force will meet monthly. It has begun its work by reviewing priorities, studying the data and reviewing Board direction. The task force is made up of parents, staff members and community members. Every residential area of the District is represented.
