The School District of Lancaster started a Boundary Task Force in February 2019 to look at the current school boundaries to see how it can be updated and the postive and negative effects it will, have on our schools, our students and our families. In April 2022, they will make the final boundary recommendation. Please click HERE to see the changes and enter your address to see if and how your family will be affected by the changes. If you have questions or concerns regarding the boundary changes, please reach out to your school or reach out to Marisol Santos, Director of Student & Family Engagement at The Mix.
