More Seats for More StudentsSuggested Boundary Options for New Elementary School at Williamsburg

February 2013

  • In this stage of the More Seats for More Students process, APS is working with the community to identify possible boundary options for the new elementary school
  • APS developed the Online Boundary Tool to provide the Arlington community with an opportunity to interact with the data in an approachable way.
  • During our January 23rd meeting, we shared and discussed 18 boundary option maps suggested by the community.
  • Based on community feedback, we developed a smaller set of four possible options incorporating comments we heard in those discussions.
  • Discuss and examine the four boundary options presented tonight.
  • Consider these options using the criteria matrix suggested by the School Board (to be discussed in a few minutes).
  • Discuss possible planning unit splits to achieve smoother boundaries.
criteria matrix1
Criteria Matrix
  • Alignment – minimizing separation of small groups of students from their classmates when moving between school levels
  • Contiguity – maintaining attendance zones that are contiguous and contain the school to which students are assigned
  • Demographics – promoting demographic diversity
criteria matrix2
Criteria Matrix
  • Efficiency – minimizing future capital and operating costs
  • Proximity – keeping students close to the schools they attend
  • Stability – minimizing the number of times that boundary changes affect an individual student, and minimizing the number of students moved to a different school
small groups
Small Groups
  • We’d love to hear your feedback!
  • In small groups, after you have had a chance to review these options, discuss and review these four options using the matrix.
  • Also, discuss possible planning unit splits to achieve smoother boundaries.
  • Other feedback
