The Beaverton School District has started to execute a 3-year plan to reduce overcrowding. Here are the highlights:
- Opening of the new high school in the southwest area in fall, 2017 will greatly relieve high school capacity issues district-wide. Although our boundary adjustment process is not complete (expected Spring 2016), the springboard proposal has no high school at more than 97% capacity.
- Opening the new K-5 elementary school in fall, 2017 will start to relieve elementary capacity issues. We expect to complete the elementary boundary adjustment process by December 2016.
- Opening the new middle school in fall, 2016 is the first step in providing additional capacity in four schools being rebuilt. The schools are Vose, William Walker, Hazeldale elementary schools, and Arts & Communication Magnet Academy.
- Opening the new middle school in fall, 2016 also provides the option of implementing part of the recommendations from the Overcrowding Solutions Committee convened last year. If necessary to relieve Stoller Middle School overcrowding, Summa Stoller students will attend school at the new middle school.
- Additionally, if necessary, BSD will implement other parts of the Overcrowding Solutions Committee recommendations to relieve overcrowding at Springville K-8. Doing so would relocate some programs and temporarily alter others.
