BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

The Beaverton School District will be holding a meeting Thursday night to hear thoughts from the community on recent boundary proposals.

The district said it is in the process of redrawing the boundaries of all five of its high schools.

The process began in October 2015 and will end in sometime in March of this year. 

The boundary changes would move thousands of kids to different schools.

The district said the boundaries lines will address the overcrowding of schools and make way for larger enrollment numbers in the future.  

Community members will get a chance to voice their opinions at Five Oaks Middle School Thursday night at 6 p.m.

Portland Public Schools is also proposing boundary changes in order to solve the overcrowding problems with several of its schools.

Officials said there are too many kids at Chapman, Capitol Hill, and Hayhurst elementary schools as well as Lincoln High School.

Students, parents, and staff met at Wilson High School on Tuesday to discuss the proposals.
