Natomas Unified to discuss changes related to higher enrollment

Natomas Unified School District staff will discuss Wednesday how the district could deal with increased enrollment while waiting for a federal building moratorium to be lifted.

A brief slide show will discuss the potential for school boundary changes, as well as closing some schools to transfers.

The moratorium has been in place since 2008, when the Federal Emergency Management Agency determined area levees were unstable. Superintendent Chris Evans has said he anticipates the moratorium will end before the end of the 2015-16 school year.

The meeting will be held at district headquarters at 1901 Arena Blvd. The open session will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Editor’s note (Aug. 26): An earlier version of this post characterized the Wednesday board discussion too broadly. Board members will not discuss long-term plans for growth, but rather ways the district can accommodate higher enrollment until it can expand schools or build new campuses.
