APS to consider Boundary Change for North Star, Double Eagle elementaries

A public meeting is scheduled for March 28, time and location to be determined.

NSES Committee RecommendationAn Albuquerque Public Schools administrative boundary committee has made a proposal to change the attendance area boundaries for North Star and Double Eagle elementary schools for the 2013-14 school year.

The boundary change is designed to reduce overcrowding at North Star Elementary, which was completed in 2005 and has had more students enrolled that it was designed for since the 2007-08 school year. In 2008, a classroom block was added and enrollment was again below the school’s site capacity of 663 students. Beginning in the 2010-11 school year, enrollment again exceeded the site capacity.

If the proposed boundary change is approved by the APS Board of Education in April, it is expected to reduce the number of students at North Star to about 676 students in the 2013-14 school year.

Under the proposed change, students currently living in an area bounded by Alameda on the north, Paseo del Norte on the south, Ventura on the west and Eubank on the east, would attend Double Eagle Elementary next year instead of North Star. For a full description of the committee recommendation, see the PROPOSED CHANGES attached.

A meeting to gather public input on the proposed change is set for March 28.  The time and location of the meeting have not yet been set.
