2024-2025 Interim K-5 Transition & Boundaries

Jerome School District will move all elementary schools to a K-5 neighborhood model for the 2024-2025 school year. We anticipate moving to a K-6 neighborhood model in the 25-26 school year. 

After careful consideration and survey feedback from our dedicated staff and community members, we will transition all elementary schools to a K-5 Model starting in the 2024-2025 school year.

Transition Details:

  • K-5 Model Implementation: Beginning in the 2024-2025 school year, Summit Elementary, 
    Horizon Elementary, and Frontier Elementary schools will transition to a K-5 neighborhood

  • model. These schools will serve Kindergarten through 5th grade students who live in their
    respective boundaries.

  • Jefferson Elementary - Dual Language Immersion: The DLI program will begin next
    school year (24-25) at all open  elementary schools.  They will move into Jefferson
    Elementary as soon as the remodel is completed. This ensures the smoothest transition for all of our students and staff without rushing the Jefferson construction.

  • Postponing K-6 Transition: Based on staff and community surveys, the transition to a K-6 model will be postponed until the 2025-2026 school year. This allows us to utilize the existing space in the three elementary schools effectively until the Jefferson remodel is complete. When Jefferson is complete (at the beginning of the school year or later) we want to ensure a seamless and successful transition for everyone involved.

  • Boundaries: With the transition to K-5 neighborhood schools, attendance boundaries will be set to ensure equitable distribution of students and optimize school capacities. Please see the proposed boundary information below. 

Thank you for being a part of our wonderful school community and we look forward to the exciting journey ahead!

There is no information about a 4 day school week here. That is a separate ongoing discussion.

How were the Boundaries Decided?

These boundaries aim to bring the vision of neighborhood schools to Jerome School District and the following have contributed to all boundary decisions:

  • School Population Distribution No other criteria holds greater weight.

  • Minimize Distance Between Schools and Homes

  • Streamline Bus Routes and Travel Time

  • Special Program Student Populations

  • Safety Roads with heavy traffic, safety concerns and bus transportation.

  • Current Students and Future Enrollment including projections of increased enrollment for new housing.

  • Improve Traffic & Bus Congestion including the length of time on buses for students.
