New High School Attendance Boundaries
June 15, 2006
Attendance Boundaries Approved by Board of Education
The Ann Arbor Public Schools Board of Education unanimously approved the new high school attendance boundaries recommendation at the June 14 Board of Education meeting.
The recommendation was derived from a process that started in August and included a 27-member committee of students, staff, administrators, parents and community members.
The recommendation process included the development of guiding parameters, a web survey, 6 community forums and 4 neighborhood center visits.
The committee carefully considered 9 scenarios and thoroughly reviewed data, best practices and detailed research to reach the recommendation that was brought forward by the Superintendent.
Strengths of the Recommendation
