BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The Kern High School District is hosting a forum tonight regarding proposed boundary changes due to the opening of Del Oro High School.
The forum will be held from 7-9 p.m. at Foothill High School, located at 501 Park Dr. The community will be able to review the proposed boundary maps and provide input to the district at the meeting.
KHSD said a citizens committee has been working since April to revise the attendance boundaries. The new boundaries will go into effect in August 2022, when Del Oro High School opens its doors at East Panama Lane and Cottonwood Road for an initial phase of freshman and sophomore students.
KHSD said proposals for the new boundaries may affect eighth and ninth-graders in the 2021-22 school year and many of its current high schools as it tries to shift students from other schools over to Del Oro and relieve crowding in the district.
Another forum will be held on June 29 at Golden Valley High School, located at 800 Hosking Rd.
