Possible New Boundaries for Davenport Elementary Schools

proposed new boundaries for elementary schools in Davenport

Following a decision to close several elementary schools, Monday night the Davenport school board will consider new boundaries for the remaining schools.

Last month, the board posted proposed maps for 15 elementary schools, and asked for feedback. And following discussion by district officials, updated maps are on Monday night's agenda.

In December, the board voted to close Washington, Monroe, and Buchanan schools at the end of the current school year, with whichever new boundaries are chosen, to take effect in the fall.

After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
