Kuna school board works on new elementary school attendance zones

The Kuna school district will meet with the public to unveil plans for new elementary school attendance zones.
The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 1, at Kuna Middle School, 1360 Boise St.
District administrators have come up with a very tentative draft proposal of what the new attendance zones will look like next school year when the district opens its newest elementary school, Silver Trail Elementary, near the corner of Ten Mile and Columbia roads.
Details are still being worked out, but a draft map shows Silver Trail’s zone encompassing the north part of Kuna, including such subdivisions as Denali Heights, Danskin Ridge and Applewood. Silver Trail’s zone also dips down south of Hubbard Road to include Arbor Ridge, then east of Kay Avenue to include the Greyhawk subdivision.
The new draft Silver Trail zone takes over houses from the current Crimson Point zone and the Hubbard-Teed zone.
In turn, the Crimson Point zone would move south to just before West Kuna Road on the west side of Ten Mile Road, not including the Sego Prairie and Discovery Creek subdivisions. Crimson Point would keep such subdivisions as Crimson Point, Palomar Heights, Mineral Springs and Walnut Creek.
Kuna school board members went over the zone boundaries during a special work session last week. The district plans to present at least a couple of options to the public on Feb. 1 with the hopes of approving the zones at the Feb. 8 school board meeting, though the timeline is flexible.
