School District Boundary Task Force

Final Report

SB134 of the 2015 Legislative session establishes the school district boundary task force. The mission of the task force is to examine the boundaries of the existing school districts and recommend possible changes to those school district boundaries. In addition, the task force is to recommend a process for addressing minor boundary changes in the future once the one-year moratorium established in SB 134 has ended. A final report is due to the Governor and the Executive Board of the Legislative Research Council by December 1, 2015.
