Boundary Study

In alignment with the Board of Education resolution on Regional Opportunities for Thriving Schools Phase IIJeffco is conducting a study of its school boundaries and articulation areas. Many school districts across the country periodically study their boundaries to respond to changing demographics and better use resources to serve students.

This boundary study is an important step to help the district more deeply understand the most important factors families consider in making a school choice. It will also help the district make decisions about facilities and resource planning.

In the 2022-23 school year, 42% of Jeffco families opted to attend a school other than their designated neighborhood school. Jeffco continues to face the reality that there are significantly fewer school-age children in Jeffco today than there were 20 years ago. In order to create learning environments that provide extraordinary experiences for all students, the district needs to better understand long-term enrollment trends within and across our school boundaries.

District leaders are committed to sharing findings from the boundary study and gathering community input as we learn more. Please check back on this page as we will keep it up to date with information and opportunities to engage.

What will the boundary study explore?

The boundary study will explore the following topics and questions included in the Board of Education resolution:

  • Why Jeffco families make the choices they do when it comes to school enrollment, including access to programming.
  • Recommended articulation-area adjustments aligned with current and projected enrollment, choice patterns and trends, and transportation.
  • Recommended school boundary adjustments aligned with current and projected enrollment, choice patterns and trends, and transportation efficiency and reliability.
  • If/how the District’s current portfolio of schools can adequately serve its student population without the construction of additional schools proposed in the 2018 bond and currently allocated in the Capital Improvement Program (replacement schools based on facility condition excluded).
  • Realignment of Board member districts to maximize constituent representation in each district.

Opportunities to Engage

We will continue to keep this website up to date with opportunities for community members to engage.

Expected Timeline

The boundary study will unfold over the 2023-24 school year, with an expected conclusion in August 2024. We expect community engagement to begin in February 2024.
