APS Board Approves Attendance Area Changes in Regions 3 & 6

After careful consideration, the APS Board of Education has approved new attendance areas for students attending Lyn Knoll and Century elementary schools, as well as fifth-grade students who would have attended South Middle School for the upcoming school year. Click here to see the new school boundary changes. 

These changes will be effective beginning in the 2021-22 school year. This decision will not result in any changes to school boundaries for this current school year.

In January 2021, the APS Board of Education approved several proposed Blueprint APS changes to Regions 3 and 6, including closing both Lyn Knoll and Century elementary schools and phasing out South Middle School. These changes required new attendance area boundaries for some elementary and middle schools within those regions. 

As part of the process for establishing attendance area boundaries for affected schools in Regions 3 and 6, APS formed two committees comprised of parents, staff and community members. These committees assessed the attendance areas and enrollment capacities in these regions and recommended attendance area changes as needed at the following schools:

  • Century
  • Dartmouth 
  • Iowa
  • Jewell
  • Lansing
  • Lyn Knoll
  • Yale
  • Sixth Avenue
  • Aurora Hills
  • North
  • South

APS held virtual community meetings and provided a survey to share the scenarios and gather feedback from parents, staff and community members. Based on the data collected and community input, district leadership and the boundary committees recommended school boundary changes to the APS Board of Education for some schools in Regions 3 and 6.
