School Boundary Initiative - Updated 1/15/20

School Boundary Initiative Overview 

Deer Valley Unified School District (DVUSD) has gathered information about school attendance boundary changes in our district. The first step in engaging parents for feedback was a survey emailed to parents in September. As our process continued, we invited all interested DVUSD parents and staff to attend Community Meetings on Monday, November 18 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. These meetings took place at all DVUSD high schools for parents of children who attend school in that high school region.*  At the meetings, results from the survey were shared, as well as a timeline for potential boundary changes. The Powerpoint Presentations from the November 18 meetings are posted below. The second Community Meetings were held on December 9 and December 11. Information and presentations are posted below.

On Tuesday, January 14, 2020 the DVUSD Governing Board considered four boundary change options. See below each boundary consideration and results of the vote. For specific details, click below for Proposed School Boundary Change Presentation.
