MEETING IS ONLINE ONLY: There is no meeting at the Community House.

The LVCA is hosting a meeting on Mon, Nov 16 at 8 PM to discuss the APS Elementary School Boundary Changes.

The goal of the meeting is to determine if LVCA can develop a consensus position to advocate to APS.

All interested LV residents, particularly those with school aged children, are invited.

Boundary Update
The meeting will start with a brief update on the current status of the ever-changing boundary process.

The initial (Oct 5) boundary proposal redrew school boundaries across Arlington. The proposal divided LV students between Science Focus and the new Key school. New boundaries were proposed for Science Focus and Taylor. Parents across Arlington were not happy.

After community-wide feedback, an updated proposal was presented on Nov 5. Under the Nov 5 proposal LV will be split among 3 schools: Science Focus, Key, and Taylor. Some LV parents are not happy.
