New School Boundaries Approved by the Board of Education
The WSD is building a new high school and a new elementary school to meet the needs of our growing District. Part of that process included adjusting elementary, middle and high school boundaries. The 2019 Boundary Committee met five times from May through November 2019 to develop new boundaries.
On December 19, 2019, the Board of Education approved the boundaries recommended by the committee.
New Elementary School Boundaries
*Effective beginning in the 2020-2021 school year
New Middle School Boundaries
**Effective beginning in the 2021-2022 school year
New High School Boundaries
**Effective beginning in the 2021-2022 school year
This is the resulting feeder pattern beginning in the 2021-2022 school year:
*Schools in italics (Duello and the new elementary) split feed; Duello students split between Frontier and South Middle and also split between Liberty and Timberland for high school, and the new elementary school will split between South Middle and Wentzville Middle, but will all go to the new high school.

November 19, 2019 - Meeting Recap
At the final meeting, committee members reviewed each map and discussed the feedback they had received related to each scenario. Adjustments were presented and made to the maps in real time and the committee analyzed the resulting data related to those suggestions. Ultimately the consensus of the committee was to move forward with the maps as-is for elementary, middle and high school attendance areas as their recommendation to the Board of Education.
November 7, 2019 - Board of Education Work Session
At the Board work session, Dan Schmidt, the consultant hired last year to conduct a new demographic study and facilitate the boundary process, presented the status of the Boundary Committee's work to date as well as updated projections based on this year's enrollment. Board members asked questions related to transportation and building capacity for each map representing new potential boundaries for the District's elementary, middle and high schools.

October 29, 2019 - Meeting Recap
At the fourth meeting, the committee reviewed the feedback collected during the month of September through three community forums and an online survey. The three community forums were attended by over 370 people and 2,055 individuals responded to the online survey. That feedback was used by MGT to make adjustments to the boundary maps, which were reviewed by administration prior to the committee meeting.
Changes brought to the committee included keeping developments that exit onto Highway Z south of Highway 70 at Timberland; keeping the current Liberty boundaries intact; moving Lakeview Elementary from Wentzville Middle to Frontier Middle (they would then go to Holt for high school - keeping them together for elementary, middle and high school); and some adjustments to the Green Tree, Crossroads, Prairie View, Duello, Boone Trail, Stone Creek and new elementary boundaries. The committee spent a significant amount of time discussing the maps. They made further adjustments to the elementary map, no changes to the middle school map (although a number of changes were suggested, no consensus was reached to achieve relieving overcapacity issues at Wentzville Middle), and a few adjustments were made to the high school map related to the Timberland and new high school boundaries.
August 27, 2019 - Meeting Recap
At the third meeting, Dan Schmidt and Lara Opheim from MGT Consulting Group presented "A" and "B" scenarios to the committee for elementary, middle and high school boundaries. The feedback from the committee at the May 21st meeting was used to update the scenarios and the committee was asked to choose which scenario they were comfortable moving forward with. The committee chose the "A" scenarios which emphasized a balanced utilization of space across all schools in the WSD.
May 21, 2019 - Meeting Recap
At the second meeting, Dan Schmidt and Lara Opheim from MGT Consulting Group presented two scenarios as a starting point for the committee to review for elementary, middle and high school boundaries. The scenarios were organized in a north/south and east/west fashion crafted by MGT to begin the conversation. The committee worked in groups to review each scenario and react with their initial impressions as to what they liked and areas that could be improved. All of the feedback was compiled and reviewed and revisions are currently being made to the scenarios based on the committee's work and input. The next Boundary Committee meeting is scheduled for August 27 from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in the library at Holt High School.
