Changes to come in Bismarck Schools

By  | 

The fate of more than 400 Bismarck elementary school students is up in the air.

Board members are trying to figure out where they should go and how to tackle over-crowding.

The change wouldn't be implemented for at least two years, in the fall of 2019.

The boundary meetings will occur next September once enrollment numbers are finalized.

“We do need to make some changes, we do. There's no doubt about it. We have a lot of growth in the North but we have a weird situation where we have room in our districts for those but it's just not in this geographic areas of the growth. So we're trying to find a balance for that,” said school board president, Karl Lembke.

This could be the second move in four years for some BPS parents.
Lembke says he knows switching schools is inconvenient, which is why the board looking at its options in depth.
