CMS Presents Two Possible Scenarios for High School Attendance Boundaries
Take the Assignment Survey Here

(May 15, 2021) At a Community Engagement Session on May 6, CMS Planning Services shared two scenarios for new attendance areas for Olympic and the new relief high school, which is currently under construction on York Road adjacent to Palisades Park Elementary School. Funded by the 2017 bond, the new school will provide relief for Olympic High School and, potentially, other high schools, including Harding, and is scheduled to open in fall 2022.

In both scenarios, students in the Nations Ford area will transfer from Harding to either Olympic or the new high school.

Scenario Green divides the current Olympic attendance area along Westinghouse Boulevard and minimizes travel time.

Scenario Violet creates a better socioeconomic diversity for both schools.

Planning Services expects to hold a third session to preview the superintendant's recommendation to the School Board, and the superintendant will make his recmmendation at the May 25 School Board meeting. The School Board also will have a public hearing on the new boundaries at its May 25 meeting. The School Board should vote on the boundary in June or July.
