• JCPS Boundary Committee

    The committee was created to evaluate district data* to develop scenarios that represent two balanced middle school attendance areas that will then populate two JCPS high schools - Jefferson City High School and Capital City High School - in the fall of 2019 (for the 2019-2020 school year).  

    (*Student capacity at each building and the percentage of students receiving a free or reduced meal price due to household income levels.)

     

    Final Boundary Committee Scenarios

    The commitee has finalized the following scenarios to be presented to the public for feedback:

    Option A:
    This scenario changes the elementary school boundary lines for Cedar Hill and South. Approximately 40 students would move from Cedar Hill Elementary to South Elementary. Cedar Hill students would attend LCMS/JCHS, while South Elementary would attend TJMS/CCHS. This option also moves the entire Thorpe Gordon attendance area to LCMS/JCHS. Thorpe Gordon's attendance area is currently split between middle/high schools. Click here for enrollment data and to view the map.

    Option B:
    This scenario changes the middle/high school boundary lines for Cedar Hill Elementary. All current Cedar Hill students would continue attending Cedar Hill, but the student population would split for middle/high school. Some Cedar Hill students would attend LCMS/JCHS, while others would attend TJMS/CCHS. This option also moves the entire Thorpe Gordon attendance area to LCMS/JCHS. Thorpe Gordon's attendance area is currently split between middle/high schools. Click here for enrollment data and to view the map. 

    *This map is the same as Option A. The difference in the two options:  Option A changes the elementary boundary line and moves Cedar Hill students to South, while Option B does not use that new dividing line until Cedar Hill students move on to middle school. 

    Option C:
    This scenario utilizes the district's current boundary lines, but moves the entire Thorpe Gordon attendance area to LCMS/JCHS. Thorpe Gordon's attendance area is currently split between middle/high schools. Click here for enrollment data and to view the map.
