Deer Creek schools will hold public forums on school redistricting
Deer Creek schools will hold public forums Thursday and Tuesday to hear comments from parents about redistricting concerns.
Deer Creek parents will have the opportunity to voice their opinions and concerns about school redistricting during upcoming public forums.
The district will open a fifth elementary campus in the fall of 2014, the 52,000-square-feet Spring Creek Elementary at NW 150 and N Rockwell.
To map out the details of the redistricting process, school board members formed a committee in September composed of two board members, nine parents and four administrators.
The committee presented two plans for redistricting during a Jan. 14 school board meeting. Both plans would send elementary students from Deer Creek and Rose Union to the new Spring Creek campus, and both would shrink Grove Valley's territory to expand enrollment at Prairie Vale.
Plan A would keep 82 percent of students at their current campuses. Plan B would keep 78 percent of students at their current schools.
Board member Jacob Mays said the board is expected to approve one of the plans during its Feb. 11 meeting.
The board has scheduled two public forums for parents to speak on the issue, the first of which is Thursday at Church of the Servant, 14343 N MacArthur Blvd. The forum will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and will allow each speaker three minutes. Speakers must submit a form when they arrive.
