School Board to hear new boundary recommendations

boundary recommendations The Northshore School Board will hear the new boundary recommendations for its junior and senior high schools at the 3:30 p.m. board meeting Dec. 10 in Ricketts Auditorium.
   A community-based boundary committee has been working since Sept. 26 to determine boundaries for Timbercrest, the new junior high, scheduled to open in the fall of 1997. The committee was asked to try to align school feeder patterns: elementary to junior high to high school. They have also worked to balance school enrollment in relation to school capacity and studied projected growth rates in various school communities.
   Timbercrest will be the easternmost school in the Northshore School District, located east of Paradise Lake at 19115 215th NE in Woodinville.
   Following the Dec. 10 meeting, the first reading of the school organization proposal will be heard Jan. 14, with another meeting Jan. 27.
   The new proposal will send elementary students from Canyon Creek, Crystal Springs, Fernwood, Kokanee (pocket north of 228th), and Shelton View (Brentwood and Heron Hills only) to Skyview Junior High School and then on to Bothell High School. Students from Frank Love, Kokanee, Maywood Hills, and Westhill (all except pocket north of 228th attending Skyview) would attend Canyon Park Junior High School and then Bothell High School.
   Elementary students from Arrowhead (area 2 [Carlyle]), Moorlands, Woodmoor, and Sunrise would go to Northshore Junior High. Kenmore, Lockwood, Shelton View (all except Brentwood and Heron Hills), and Arrowhead (area) would go to Kenmore Junior High. Both Northshore and Kenmore Junior Highs would then feed into Inglemoor High School.
   Leota Junior High would accept students from Hollywood Hill, Wellington, Woodin, and Cottage Lake (pocket south of Mack's Corner). Students from Bear Creek, Cottage Lake (except pocket south of Mack's Corner), and Eastridge Elementaries would attend the new junior high school, Timbercrest. Both Leota and Timbercrest would feed into Woodinville High School.
