School Attendance Area Boundary changes

Franklin Elementary School will get a boost in student enrollment next school year when Walnut Grove Elementary School is closed. The Council Bluffs Board of Education approved the new school attendance areas to assign the current Walnut Grove students to four schools, including Carter Lake, Edison, Franklin and Roosevelt elementary schools. As a result of the attendance area boundary shifts, about 133 Walnut Grove students will be assigned next year to attend Franklin. Also as a result of the school attendance area boundary shift, approximately 40 of our current Franklin students have been assigned to attend Roosevelt Elementary next year.

 

The school boundaries were drawn carefully to balance the numbers of students at each building, based on the number of classrooms available. Next year, enrollment at Franklin is estimated to be approximately 460 students in kindergarten through fifth grade, well within the number of students our building is designed to serve.

 

Each Walnut Grove family is being notified of their new school for next year so they can begin getting to know the new school’s principal, teachers, support staff, students and parents. We will be planning several opportunities for our new students to visit our school this school year to participate in activities to become familiar with the school and our great students, staff and parents.
