Kuna school board to discuss elementary school zones on Tuesday

Kuna school board members will meet in a work session at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 11, to discuss school attendance zones.
The school district will be rezoning its elementary school attendance zones next school year because of the opening of the new elementary school, Silver Trail Elementary.
The district had presented a number of options to the public for consideration in reconfiguring the elementary school structure, including the possibility of theme-based schools of choice.
Following a sparsely attended Study Circle session in November, members of the public overwhelmingly favored simply dividing the current four school zones into five new school zones evenly based on geography.
School board members are scheduled to meet for an hour starting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday before the regular board meeting, which is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend the meeting, at the district office, 711 E. Porter Road.
Also on the agenda for the evening are:
• an educational report from the superintendent
• an economic report
• a website report
• bond projects update and change order
• superintendent contract renewal
• a discussion of trustee zones
• possible action on elementary school attendance zones
• a request for permission to go to bid for a school bus.
