Updated June 5, 2019: Thank you to the nearly 3,600 Folsom families who responded to our initial survey! The District will analyze feedback and post results on this website later this summer, as well as provide a detailed set of answers to the most frequently asked questions. Information on upcoming public forums, to be held later this fall, will be updated on this website in the coming weeks.
Later in the fall of 2019, the Folsom Cordova Unified School District will begin the process of reviewing and proposing changes to attendance boundaries in our Folsom schools.
No changes have been proposed at this time. We’re reaching out to the community now because we want to give all of our families multiple opportunities for input during the process. Any adopted changes would not take effect until the 2020-2021 school year.
Boundary changes will help our Folsom schools maintain the level of excellence our families have come to expect by better balancing enrollment capacity at our schools. With two similar-sized, large middle schools feeding into two, different-sized high schools, existing feeder patterns have created overcrowding issues at Vista del Lago High School.
Public forums and next steps: We will hold two public forums this fall for community input. As soon as the dates and locations are finalized, we’ll notify our families.
After our public forums this fall, the District will make a formal recommendation to the Board of Education. Upon approval, changes will take effect for the 2020-21 school year.
Note: This process does not include feeder patterns for new schools planned for construction in Folsom Ranch, South of Highway 50. Temporary feeder patterns for students living in those areas until new schools are built have already been established (more info online here).
