More than a line on a map: New boundaries for the Sioux Falls School District on the way

Local News

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The Sioux Falls School District tells KELOLAND News that boundaries for middle and high schools are definitely going to change, while they might change for elementary schools.

There will be a “School Boundary Task Force” which is going to make recommendations, while the final call on boundaries will be made by the Sioux Falls School Board. The application to be a part of the task force is open right now.

DeeAnn Konrad with the district says that drawing these lines isn’t easy.

“We understand that it’s a very emotional task,” Konrad said. “It’s not just a line that’s drawn on a map, it’s neighborhoods that you want to keep together, it’s making sure that we’re being efficient with busing. it’s making sure that we’re not requiring students who aren’t bussed to cross a very busy street which could risk their safety.”

Coming up later tonight on KELOLAND Weekend News, we look at changing boundaries in the Sioux Falls School District, including how you can have a say in it.
