Volunteers Needed for Lake Ridge MS and Woodbridge MS Boundary Planning Committee
The Office of Facilities Services for Prince William County Public Schools seeks local community members and/or parents or legal guardians of students who attend either Lake Ridge Middle School or Woodbridge Middle School to join an attendance area boundary planning committee. The objective is to develop proposed boundary recommendation(s) resulting from the opening of a 13-classroom addition at Lake Ridge Middle School opening in 2018 for the School Board’s consideration. Adjustments to the middle school attendance areas will take effect for the 2018–19 school year.
Committee membership is limited. Selection preference will be given to local community members and parents/guardians who are directly impacted by the opening of the classroom addition, as well as to local leaders, such as PTO/PTA officers and school advisory council members.
The Office of Facilities Services will work closely with the committee to develop boundary modification proposals. The duties of committee members will include evaluating student enrollment, demographic, bus transportation, and real estate data, in order to prepare well-informed middle school boundary recommendations for the School Board’s consideration. Committee meetings will occur once a week during evenings from March through early April.
In addition to its regular meetings, the boundary committee will also attend two Community Meetings where the general public is asked to review the committee’s boundary proposals and to provide feedback on each plan’s perceived strengths and weaknesses. The first is scheduled for Monday, March 20 at 7 p.m. in the Woodbridge Middle School auditorium. The second community meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. in the Gar-Field High School auditorium.
