Boundary changes approved for next fall
School boundaries will be changing for the start of the 2022-2023 school year. The school board voted on Dec. 9 to approve boundary change option “A”, which moves approximately 200 students out of Lake Elmo Elementary to Brookview and Rutherford. It also sends about 180 open and alternately enrolled students back to their home schools.
As part of the boundary change plan any child displaced by a boundary change will have priority to apply back to their chosen school through alternate enrollment. Next year’s 5th and 8th grade students will also be allowed to stay in their current school so they can finish out their final year in that building.
