R-7 presents 3 boundary change options

The Lee’s Summit School District has posted three options for boundary changes that would take effect next fall, as part of a planning effort aimed at accommodating growth and balancing enrollment among schools.

New enrollment projections estimate the district will grow by 1,620 students in the next decade: 691 at the high school level, 319 in middle school and 610 at elementary level.

The Phase 1 recommendations are being presented at public meetings this week but but can be found at www.lsr7.org/cfmp. The site also contains a feedback form as well as a link to a Thoughtexchange forum that asks an open question and allows people to answer and rate the thoughts of others. Both will be available until 10 p.m. Nov. 29.

Meanwhile, the district has changed the location of its final public engagement meeting during the strategic planning process.

Because space has opened up there, all three meetings this week are at the Missouri Innovation Campus, 1101 N.W. Innovation Parkway. They were scheduled from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Nov. 27, 28 and 29.
