The process of drawing boundaries and setting program locations as PPS reconfigures K-8 schools to K-5s and middle schools will be a collaboration with the District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee and the community. DBRAC is tasked with providing recommendations to the Superintendent on grade configuration, size, and boundaries of neighborhood schools.

UPDATE: This proposal was approved by the Board on February 13, 2017 and will take effect for new neighborhood students starting in Fall 2017. Interim Superintendent Bob McKean recommended to the Board a small boundary change that would assign new students in the Kenton neighborhood to Peninsula instead of Chief Joseph beginning next year. The aim of this boundary change is to make space in Ockley Green Middle School by enabling Chief Joseph to become a K-5 again. This proposal was one of two options recommended by DBRAC.
