Irvington Principal Announcement
A number of parents have asked me if any decisions have been made around changing school boundaries or changing current school configurations. The answer is that different options are still being discussed by the District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee (DBRAC). Parents who have attended the meetings have relayed that the options currently being discussed propose transforming the majority of K-8 schools into K-5 schools, however nothing has been decided at this point because the decision has to take into account a number of factors. To clarify, DBRAC is an advisory committee that will make a recommendation to the Board of Education. The Board of Education will then make a final decision after hearing public testimony. More information about the work of the DBRAC Committee and the process can be found at http://www.pps.k12.or.us/departments/enrollment-transfer/9522.htm
If I hear any additional information in the meantime, I will be sure to pass it on to the Irvington community.
Have a great weekend,
