School board approves boundary change for Kimberly Lane, Greenwood schools

At its November 8 meeting, the school board of Wayzata Public Schools approved a boundary adjustment for the Kimberly Lane attendance area and moved three designated areas to the Greenwood attendance area effective immediately.

The boundary adjustment affects less than 10 students and they have been grandfathered into the Kimberly Lane attendance area. The changes were made due to future housing developments planned in these areas.

Current and projected resident enrollment at Kimberly Lane created the need to make a boundary adjustment for the current and future years. Although resident enrollment growth within the current Kimberly Lane attendance area has been higher than projected, total enrollment within Greenwood's attendance area has been slightly lower than projected. This shift should help to stabilize enrollments at both Kimberly Lane and Greenwood.

The first census area that was moved includes current and future residences in the city of Plymouth, north of the current Plymouth Creek attendance area, extending north to the city of Maple Grove. Greenwood's existing eastern boundary will be extended east from Lawndale Lane North to Vicksburg Lane North. It was recommended that the three current elementary students who are affected by this adjustment be given the option to continue their attendance at Kimberly Lane for the remainder of their elementary years.

The second census area that was moved includes approximately 45 future residences in a small census area in the city of Maple Grove. This area is contiguous to the current Greenwood attendance boundary. Greenwood's northern attendance boundary has been extended north of County Road 47 to 63rd Avenue North. Greenwood's eastern attendance boundary has been extended east of County Road 101 to Vagabond Lane North. At this time, there are no students currently residing in this area.

The third census area that was moved includes approximately 63 current and future residences in a small census area in the city of Maple Grove. This area is contiguous to the current Greenwood attendance boundary. Greenwood's northern attendance boundary has been extended north into the city of Maple Grove to 62nd Place North on both Queensland Lane North and Peony Lane North. It also includes all of Olive Lane North. Greenwood's northern attendance boundary has been extended to Fieldstone Boulevard Lane on Merrimac Lane North. The eastern boundary for this attendance area is now Lawndale Lane North. The western boundary for this attendance area is now Queensland Lane North. One student who is affected by this adjustment will be given the option to continue attendance at Kimberly Lane for the remainder of his elementary years.
