Redmond school leaders are preparing for their second high school to open next year and today we are getting an early picture of what the big change may look like. So far the Board is recommending roughly an even, north-south split. KBND talked to the Board chair, who says there will also be some flexibility for some students. Redmond School Board Chair Jim Erickson says Redmond High School and Ridgeview High will offer the same basic courses, but will show some individuality when it comes to specialized programs. “So at one there would be an A.P. program; the other ones, an international baccalaureate school. At one school there would be particular specialized technical courses. At another one it would be different technical courses. So students would have the ability to choose a high school outside of what their boundary would be designated, based on those particular interests of the individual student.” He says some of that inter-district movement would be capped. These early boundary suggestions will be discussed more at several upcoming community meetings. The District want to hear from students and parents and community leaders like real estate agents who may have some helpful insight. You can go to the District's website for more details about upcoming community meetings on the attendance boundaries for the high schools.
