CPS board considers changes to elementary school boundaries

The Columbia Public Schools Board of Education got an update during Monday night’s meeting on possible changes to its elementary school boundaries.

Eight elementary schools are at 80% capacity or less, while five are at more than 100% capacity.

The district is asking families for feedback this week, both online and at in-person open houses. The open houses are Tuesday at Gentry Middle School from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Wednesday at Jefferson STEAM Middle School from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Thursday at Lange Middle School from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Some changes to elementary school boundaries tied to Parkade Elementary could take effect in the fall. Parkade is at 130% capacity, the highest in the district. Other changes would not happen until the 2022-23 school year.

The board of education looked at several potential new maps on Monday night. You can view the presentation here.
