Yorkville 115 Considering "Micro Neighborhoods" for New Boundaries

These neighborhoods would be implemented for the 2015-16 school year.

How would you describe your neighborhood?

The Yorkville 115 boundary committee has been looking at how the school district should be divided since October, and they have come up with 54 "micro neighborhoods" which would decide school students would attend. 

The proposed boundaries are divided by subdivision and major roads. You can see which neighborhood your student would fall into by finding your home's location and clicking the surrounding area. 

These micro neighborhoods will be individually assigned to attendance centers beginning with the 2015-2016 school year, according to boundary committee documents.

Residents have indicated via survey that it's extremely important (44.5 percent) that their child attends the same school as his or her close neighbors, and over 60 percent have said that they are in agreement that the micro-neighborhood map accurately reflects the community their child is a part of. 

The boundary proposal will be formally presented to the Yorkville 115 school board on Jan. 27 for adoption. 

What do you think of the micro neighborhoods? Do you think it accurately reflects your community?

The schools will be segregated by economical status. Is that really good?
