2017 Boundary Task Force

The Charge of the Boundary Task Force (BTF) was to:

  • Thoroughly study and review all elementary school attendance zones.

  • Develop a final recommendation for the Sun Prairie Area School District Board of Education on the changes in attendance areas for SPASD elementary* schools to accommodate new elementary schools #8 and #9.

  • Serve as factual “key communicators” to the Sun Prairie community throughout the boundary process.

*Primary focus of this process is elementary schools, but middle school boundaries will also be reviewed to determine if adjustments are needed.

The Process:

  • SPASD's Policy JC and Procedure JC-R guided the work

  • Public participation at Board meetings was invited and followed the guidelines within Policy BDDH.

  • We requested and valued parents and community members in this process.

  • The Boundary Task Force met from February 15, 2017 through August 2, 2017 and held:

  • A recommendation was presented to the School Board on August 28, 2017.
