In order to make that a reality, current Snoqulamie Middle School students need to be relocated to either Chief Kanim or Twin Falls Middle School. In order to make that happen, new middle school attendance boundary lines must be drawn through the City of Snoqualmie.
This afternoon, October 9th, the Snoqualmie Valley School District announced the five boundary change options that will finalize the conversion SMS to a 9th grade campus next fall.
District officials stated at the beginning of this process that they are very aware boundary changes are never easy, calling them a “very challenging process” last month.
Executive Director of Technology Services, Jeff Hogan, said at a September school board meeting that the district strives to bring “compassion to the process.”
Here are the 5 Snoqualmie Middle School Boundary Change Options:
