Boundary Changes Approved

At its regular meeting on December 5, 2017, the governing board of Dublin Unified School District unanimously approved a recommended scenario of revised attendance boundaries for several of its schools. The driving factor for these changes is the anticipated Fall 2018 opening of the new K-8 Cottonwood Creek School, located off Fallon Road in eastern Dublin. 

Over the last several months, the District's Boundary Committee has been gathering data and community input, and performing extensive analysis in order to develop and refine recommendations on the needed boundary changes. Not only was the District's anticipated growth considered, but community involvement was also a key component in the Committee's work. The process included several community input sessions, communication efforts, and other outreach activities in order to solicit feedback and suggestions from parents and other stakeholders. Included in the scope of work was the development of boundaries for the new school and consideration of potential adjustments to the boundaries for Fallon and Wells Middle Schools, as well as to those currently established for the existing K-5 elementary schools across the District. 

The Boundary Committee, led by Mrs. Tess Johnson, Director of Student Services, presented a report on their work to the Board of Trustees last week, including its recommendation. Referred to by the Committee as "Scenario 4A," the boundaries will effectively modify the feeder schools to the District's Grade 6 through 8 middle schools. Students from Amador, Dougherty, Green, and Kolb Elementary Schools will feed into Fallon Middle School, while students from Dublin, Frederiksen, and Murray Elementary Schools will feed into Wells Middle School. Cottonwood Creek Elementary will accommodate grades K though 8. A map of the new boundaries appears below. 

To ensure successful implementation of the new boundaries, the District is developing a comprehensive strategy to include the following components:

1. Develop an Innovative Specialized Instructional Program at Cottonwood Creek School
2. Develop a diversion procedure between Fallon and Cottonwood Creek for overflow students. 
3. Review the district-wide diversion procedure and share out at a February Board meeting.
4. Develop a safe routes to school plan for Cottonwood Creek School: 
a) Fallon Road access to school 
b) Expansion of current major road access strategies
5. Develop an interim housing plan (as needed)
6. Consider possible bell schedule changes to alleviate traffic issues
7. Develop a plan for 8th grade electives

Future updates will be shared with the public as they become available, and will be communicated through the District's website at www.dublinusd.org.
