Update: Attendance Boundary Review

On February 4, 2020, Superintendent Michael Pero and Dr. Jeff Cimmerer, Chief Information Officer, shared details at a community meeting about the Attendance Boundary Review that is underway in the Mendon Center Elementary School catchment area. Enrollment projections demonstrate that Mendon Center Elementary School may exceed its capacity as early as the 2020-21 school year.

Pero and Cimmerer have been presenting to parent, community and staff groups over the past few weeks to share information about the Attendance Boundary Review process, outline the enrollment projections constituting this review, and introduce the newly appointed stakeholder committee that will review these projections and make recommendations.

The anticipated outcome of the review will be to move a small portion of the Mendon Center Elementary School attendance boundaries to Allen Creek Elementary School and/or Jefferson Road Elementary School with the newly defined boundaries taking effect at the start of the 2020-21 school year.

The February 4 presentation video and slides are available on the District website www.pittsfordschools.org/attendanceboundaryreview.

As the stakeholder committee work continues, they will be hosting a work session that will be open to the public on Wednesday, February 25, at 6 p.m. at Barker Road Middle School in Meeting Room 1. Additionally, there will be another public information meeting on Wednesday, March 11, at 7 p.m. in the Mendon Center Elementary School Auditorium.

Updates and further information will be posted to the District website and shared with the community via Facebook and Twitter following informational meetings and as updates become available.
