The Millard school district has added a school-finder feature to its website that will allow residents — or those considering becoming residents — to type in an address and get a list of the schools their children would attend from elementary through high school.
The school finder is on the district's home page — www.mpsomaha.org. It is based on new school attendance boundaries proposed by district administration.
The school board is expected to vote on the plan at its regularly scheduled meeting Monday at 6 p.m. at the Don Stroh Administration Center, 5606 S. 147th St.
If approved, the plan would take effect next year. But a proposed transition plan would allow all current middle school students and fifth grade students to remain on their current school track. Grandfathering also would allow elementary students to finish in their current building and allow younger siblings to follow them there.
There are separate, less flexible rules proposed for Reagan Elementary, which has experienced severe overcrowding.
The proposed boundary changes, the most significant since Millard West High School opened in 1995, are intended to adjust boundaries at the elementary, middle and high school levels, including shrinking the attendance boundaries of Millard West to rein in forecasted overcrowding.
Also on the website are current enrollment maps, parent committee and administration recommendations and current and projected enrollment numbers, including projections reflecting grandfathering and the transition proposal.
