District proposes attendance boundary changes

The District has been continuing its work to alleviate the overcrowding at Fulton. At the last board meeting the administration shared that a first step is to relocate Fultonís Early Learning Program to Memorial. With the communityís help, the administration researched many other options, but they all proved to be expensive or impractical.

The best and most cost-effective solution is to shift attendance boundaries. This proposal allows the District to provide Fulton students with services comparable to other District 146 schools. The Districtís goal is to positively impact students while practicing good stewardship of taxpayer dollars.

The District is considering boundary changes in the areas of North Brementowne and Tinley Terrace (maps below) for the 2016-17 school year and subsequent years. The changes would reassign 2016-17 pre-k, kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders in the North Brementowne area to Kruse, and pre-k, kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders in the Tinley Terrace area to Fierke. Next yearís 3rd, 4th and 5th grade Fulton students in these areas may finish their remaining years at Fulton, but would have the option to move to the new school.

Any student who moves to Kruse or Fierke will have their registration fees waived for the 2016-17 school year.

The North Brementowne boundary change is highlighted in red on the map. Students in pre-k through 2nd grade in this area would attend Kruse Education Center beginning August 2016.

The Tinley Terrace boundary change is highlighted in blue on the map. Students in pre-k through 2nd grade in this area would attend Fierke Education Center beginning August 2016.

Here is an overview of Fultonís current boundary (black outline), with the proposed relocations highlighted again in red and blue.

On May 2 at 6:00 p.m., a Board Workshop will be held at the District 146 Administration Center. After hearing the communityís input, the Board of Education will consider a boundary change resolution at the May 9 regular board meeting.

The District is excited about the opportunity this change would provide. It immediately improves the learning conditions at Fulton. Meanwhile, Kruse and Fierke are eager and ready to receive their new students. The District looks forward to showing parents how impressive these schools are and how studentsí experiences would be enriched at their new District 146 school.

Email any questions to Superintendent Dr. Jeff Stawick at jstawick@district146.org.

The District appreciates the communityís understanding as they continually strive to improve schools and the quality of children's education at District 146.
