Proposed Boundary Adjustments Undergoing Staff, Demographer Review
    Hart District staff members are now reviewing input from three public information meetings held earlier this month to present information on proposed adjustments to Hart District attendance boundaries and to consider input from parents at those meetings.
    The first meeting at Mountainview Elementary School concerned proposed adjustments to neighborhoods north of Copperhill Drive and east of Seco Canyon Road. Those students currently attend Rio Norte Junior High School and Valencia High School—schools which are projected to become severely overcrowded in the next few years. Under the proposed boundary adjustments, those students would attend Arroyo Seco Junior High and Saugus High School, which have recently completed modernization programs and have room for additional students.
    A meeting was held at Wiley Canyon School for fourth through sixth graders at Wiley Canyon and seventh graders at Rancho Pico Junior High School who live in the Calgrove/Hidden Valley area. The meeting discussed a proposal to send students from that area to Placerita Junior High and Hart High School instead of the current Rancho Pico Junior High and severely overcrowded West Ranch High School.
    The third area being considered for a boundary adjustment is the Sierra Highway corridor north of Soledad Canyon Road. Those students currently attend La Mesa Junior High and Golden Valley High School, and would be shifted to Sierra Vista Junior High and Canyon High School under the proposed adjustment. A meeting at Mint Canyon School allowed parents from that area to learn about the proposed boundary adjustment and to express their opinions.
    The meetings clearly defined the areas affected by the proposed boundary changes and gave residents a look at the impact on enrollment at local junior and senior high schools without making some adjustments. The Hart District currently is meeting with demographers to determine the feasibility of alternative adjustments suggested by parents who attended the three meetings.
    Maps of the proposed boundary adjustments for the three areas, along with enrollment projections for coming years, are available by visiting the Hart District Web site at http://www.hartdistrict.org/news/ and following links to the desired documents.
    Another series of meetings will be scheduled in August to discuss the impact of any proposed alternatives and to address any revised boundary adjustments that may be appropriate. Families in the affected area will be notified by telephone and/or flyers before those meetings are held.
    The finalized boundary adjustments proposals are expected to go before the Hart District Governing Board in September and are scheduled to take effect in August 2010. They would involve only incoming students and would not impact those already attending the impacted schools.
