Education notebook: Spokane school boundary adjustment committee seeks volunteers

Spokane Public Schools is seeking community members and parents interested in joining the boundary adjustment committee.

The district is adding three middle schools by the end of 2023, which will result in student attendance boundary adjustments. The committee will review existing and projected student enrollment as well as construction timelines in order to discuss various boundary change scenarios and analyze the impacts of those changes.

The committee will meet two evenings a month beginning in January and continuing through April 2021. The committee will share the boundary adjustments with the community and will use that feedback to finalize boundary recommendations to be presented to the school board in May 2021.

Applications are due by Oct. 25. Call (509) 354-5775 or email for further information. Applications can be found at
