School Boundary Changes Could Impact Brooklyn Park, Brooklyn Center students
The Anoka-Hennepin School Board will vote on changes that could impact students in Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center.
There are too many students at Monroe Elementary in Brooklyn Park. But there’s room to grow at Evergreen Park World Cultures Community School in Brooklyn Center. Therefore, the board is considering two options.
Board Considering Two Options
The first option involves shifting some students from the overcrowded Monroe Elementary to Evergreen Park. The second choice involves establishing a STEM program at Evergreen Park, similar to the one at Monroe Elementary. Then, staff hopes the new program would naturally attract more students to the Brooklyn Center school.
Anoka-Hennepin Chief Operating Officer Chuck Holden says the school board has been gathering feedback from parents.
“Monroe is currently at about 600 students and it was designed for that. So, it’s very full and there are students trying to get in to that school,” said Holden. “So, the hope would be that we could shift the focus to Evergreen Park and get more students there.”
Middle and High School boundaries will stay the same.
The school board makes its final decision Monday night. They are leaning toward creating a stem program at Evergreen Park.
Any changes would be implemented during the 2019-2020 school year.
