Grandview School Board boundaries changing because of 2010 Census

GRANDVIEW - Now that the 2010 Census has been completed, the Grandview School District is looking at redrawing the school board district lines to account for population shifts.

In order to keep the Grandview School Board members representing a near equal number of people, the 2010 Census revealed that new board district lines were needed.

At Monday night's school board meeting, the board of directors were given a map that details the district changes, which includes some significant changes to each district.

One major change can be found in District 2, where a good portion would be added to District 3. This area would include the block between South Euclid Road and Frazer Road, and Chestnut, Brewer, Princeville and Sand Hill roads.

To compensate for some of this loss, District 2 will acquire a block from District 5. This new district will stretch as far south as Apricot Road and have an eastern Grandridge Road border.

District 4, located north of Grandview, will extend its borders south to Forsell Road, taking bits of District's 1, 3 and 5.

People who may consider seeking election to the school board in the future will need to examine the changes to the district boundaries to find which district their home falls into.

With these changes, the current school board member's homes will not conflict with another's district.

The school board will vote on the district changes in a special meeting held on Tuesday, May 31, at 6:30 p.m. in the Grandview High School library.
