Superior To Restructure Elementary School Boundaries + Possible Consolidation
The Superior School District has started a conversation that may affect many families in the city. District Administrator, Dr. Amy Starzecki sent an e-mail to families explaining the potential changes that may be taking place in the 2024-2025 school year.
During the school board meeting on Monday, February 6, information was shared that the elementary schools are only at 71% capacity. There are currently six elementary schools in the district. The school district believes that they have the capability of educating students with just five elementary schools.
The school district is looking for parents and staff members who are able to join a School Consolidation Advisory Committee to review data and make a recommendation to the school board this spring. There will be 2-4 meetings between February and April. The meetings will last approximately 90 minutes and be held from 4:30-6:00 pm. So far they have secured the following dates:
They hope to have the recommendation ready for the April school board meeting. They will schedule additional meetings if needed.
School boundary lines will be restructured regardless for the 2024-2025 school year to create a more evenly distributed elementary student population.
No changes would be made until the 2024-2025 school year. That's two school years away, as we now are in the last half of the 2022-2023 school year. Next fall is the 2023-2024 school year.
The Superior School District will be facing a significant budget shortfall in 2024. The school district believes that the consolidation of elementary schools is the best option moving forward.
