LPS considers changing school boundaries

Lincoln Public Schools


LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — With the anticipated opening of three new schools within the Lincoln Public Schools (LPS) district, education officials are looking to adjust the city’s school boundaries.

The Lincoln Board of Education’s Planning Committee will be proposing these changes to the full Board Tuesday. Following the proposal, the committee will release the information to the public via the LPS website for feedback.

Mulitple public forms will also be held in late August or early September concerning the boundary changes.

Any changes would not take effect until the 2022-2023 school year.

Students impacted by the new boundaries would be able to stay in their current attendance center until they graduate.
