PROPOSED AND APPROVED: Zone Changes for of I.S. 230 and I.S. 145 in District 30

Proposal Information

Description of Zone Changes for of I.S. 230 and I.S. 145 in District 30

in Effect for 2015-2016 School Year 

On April 24, 2014, Community Education Council 30 voted to change the current zones for I.S. 230 and I.S. 145. The approved zone changes for the 2015-2016 school year may be found in the maps provided below. 

Why did the CEC approve this zone change?

  • To alleviate overcrowding at I.S. 145,
  • To account for the capacity of I.S. 230’s new annex, new building Q297, located at 74-03 34th Avenue, that is slated to open in September 2014, and
  • To equalize utilization across I.S. 230 and I.S. 145.

What changes should families expect as a result of this re-zoning?

  • Some residents in the southern portion of the I.S. 145 zone may now be zoned for I.S. 230.
  • Some residents in the northeast portion of the I.S. 230 zone may now be zoned for I.S. 145.

What will this mean for my family?

The proposed changes would impact only incoming sixth grade students or students that are new to the system in the 2015-2016 school year. All currently enrolled students may remain in their school. Sixth grade students would be admitted in the following order of priority:

  1. Students with a zoned middle school have a priority to attend that school if they rank it on their middle school application. During the middle school admissions process, available seats (determined by the Office of Student Enrollment) at zoned schools will be available for non-zoned students who apply once all of the zoned students have been accommodated in the application process. Zoned students who do not apply to their zoned school will be accommodated before non-zoned students on appeal as space is available.
  2. Fifth-grade students attending a K-8 school maintain a priority for the sixth-grade middle school admissions process if they rank the continuing K-8 school on their middle school choice application. During the middle school admissions process, available seats (determined by the Office of Student Enrollment) at K-8 schools will be available for non-continuing students who apply once all of the continuing students have been accommodated in the application process. Continuing students will be accommodated before non-continuing students on appeal as space is available.
  3. When students receive a non-zoned or non-continuing school placement as a part of the middle school choice process, the students no longer have any entitlement to return to their zoned or K-8 school for the duration of middle school. Any requests for the zoned or K-8 school must be expressed through the PER or transfer process.
