FAIRFIELD — A committee working on recommendations for new high school boundaries continues to meet and will make a report this week to the school board.
The next meeting for the Fairfield-Suisun School District’s high school boundary committee will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the district office at 2490 Hilborn Road, Conference Room 102. The agenda features a final report item.
Results of that night’s meeting will be presented to the district’s Board of Trustees when it meets at 6 p.m. Thursday in the District Office. Trustees will have the ultimate say in how, if at all, the boundaries are adjusted.
The boundary committee was formed to help create a recommendation on how to adjust high school boundaries to even out student populations. Current students would not be affected. Changes would only apply to freshmen in the 2013-14 school year. The committee is also looking to create “clean feeders” where students would feed from a middle school to the same high school.
The committee is made up of various residents from several fields in the two cities. They have been meeting with district staff and other officials this month and appear close to a decision. The committee was given four options and has been exploring those at each meeting.
Kim Van Gundy, facilities director, said the group had likely settled on one recommendations and that may be presented Thursday to the board.
