2023 Review of Elementary School Boundaries

  • At the January 10 School Board meeting, the Board approved an elementary school boundary review. Board approval was the first step in the process.

    A committee of NTPS school staff, family members, and high school students will review school boundaries in the first half of 2023 and bring any recommendations to the School Board this spring. The focus of the review is elementary schools. Our elementary school’s K-5 student population range from 384 to 656 students. See our current school boundary map >>

    The review may not result in any changes—it’s good practice to review boundaries periodically.

    Meeting materials, committee roster, and the dates for community forums will be posted here. Please check back!
