Oath of Office

The Prior Lake-Savage Area School Board and the public will have another chance to weigh potential elementary school attendance boundary changes on Monday, June 3. 

The district on Tuesday announced the board would hold a study session on that date at 7:30 p.m. at 4540 Tower St. SE in Prior Lake. The meeting presentation can be found online at priorlake-savage.k12.mn.us.

The board for weeks has considered several potential adjustments to the attendance boundaries to account for a new elementary school's opening next year and growing enrollment. 

The options have also drawn a lot of public comment and criticism because some neighborhoods would change schools.

Many parents say one or more options would take their children from a school down the block to one miles away, for example. Others have suggested the board is giving open enrollment from other districts more weight than in-district families. 

District officials have said the changes will affect some students no matter what and they're trying to do what's best overall.
