Pasco School District announces new boundary proposal
PASCO, Wash. -- Pasco School District has announced new boundary changes in response to parent feedback at this week’s meetings.
The school district told KEPR they are using comments made by parents to address safety concerns.

Meetings held on Tuesday and Wednesday night brought up concerns about traffic and school routes. Most outspoken were parents in the new development of Madison Park off Road 44. They are yards from the new STEM school, Rosalind Franklin, but were not included in the original boundaries for the school. They voiced concerns their children would continue to use a route they felt was unsafe and too far.

The new boundary proposal zones Madison Park for Rosalind Franklin, alleviating the travel issues. Pasco also changed their boundaries using major roadways as perimeters, so children will not be exposed to heavy traffic.

The district has one more meeting next week on January 21st at Angelou Elementary at 6pm before the board makes its decision on January 28th.
