SPOKANE, Washington – After much debate and public comment from the Spokane community, the Spokane Public School Board decided on Wednesday to support the new changes to the enrollment limits.

This is the first major change the district has made to the maps in over 40 years, and the new boundary changes have caused a stir in the community.

While the changes have received some support, they have also raised concerns from community members who are concerned about fairness.

With these redesigned dividing lines, some schools on the north side will see more students eligible for a free and reduced lunch, while some schools in southern Spokane will have fewer. In addition, some families will have to change their plans as to where they will send their children to school.

Spokane Public Schools (SPS) said the new limits will take effect in the 2022-2023 school year for schools in the north and in the 2023-2024 school year for schools in the south.

SPS encouraged families to visit the Changing Boundaries website for more information.
