The Fargo School Board approved updated elementary attendance boundaries for implementation in the 2015-16 year at its June 24, 2014 meeting. FPS is constructing a new K-5 school, Ed Clapp Elementary School, which will open for the 2015-2016 school year at 3131 28th Street South. The boundaries set an attendance area for Ed Clapp Elementary, reduce the number of students at Lewis & Clark Elementary and Lincoln Elementary, and provides for future growth at Kennedy Elementary, Bennett Elementary and Centennial Elementary. These changes allow for future enrollment growth at elementary schools as the city of Fargo grows southward. The elementary boundaries approved are included in the Board memo below.
This spring, the School Board was also reviewing potential adjustments to the District’s middle and high school boundaries. This is necessary to ensure the academic programs at the secondary schools remain equitable. As the city grows and changes, enrollment is declining at our north side secondary schools and reaching capacity at the south side secondary schools. Enrollment projections show the south side schools will reach or exceed capacity within the next five years. Therefore, a shift in boundaries at the secondary level is needed to maintain academic programming at all secondary schools.
A variety of proposals were reviewed, which are included in the Board memos below. At the June 24 Board meeting, the decision on adjusting the middle and high school boundaries was postponed until such time the Board has developed the next version of the District’s long range strategic plan.
