Beaverton School District not ready to implement boundary changes

BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

A big decision was made after Beaverton School District Board Members said they aren't ready to implement controversial boundary changes.

The proposed changes would redraw the boundary lines, sending hundreds of students to different high schools. This is all because a new high school will open Fall 2017.

On Monday, the board sent the proposal back to Superintendent Jeff Rose, saying they want him to look further into the transportation and school proximity issues.

FOX 12 spoke with parents who are declaring this a victory for now.

"This was a good step in the right direction, but we still have a ways to go, and we aren't sure what the next process is that the district is going to follow so we're going to lobby the right people in hopes that they do what's best for the district," said Jason Cowart.

While talks about the boundary changes began, Superintendent Rose announced in March that he had taken another job in Georgia and will leave the Beaverton School District next month.

At the meeting Monday, Rose thanked the committee for their hard work and said they'll work hard to address parent's concerns.
