Well, today is the big day and the recommendation has finally arrived regarding the new boundaries for Metea Valley High School. The land site for Metea Valley is in the Northwestern corner of the school district and a quick look at any map reveals even in advance that the new boundaries promise to raise plenty of discussion.
Regardless of the ultimate outcome, I hope that we can all focus our collective energies as residents, parents and taxpayers on ensuring that all three district 204 high schools are the highest possible quality.
As is the case in business, competition is good as it provides a benchmark for comparison. In the case of District 204 high schools, I am in hopes that we not only get a new high school but also a focused comparison that reveals what it will take to ensure all three high schools are on an equal playing field.
Even more, I am also hopeful that the ultimate boundary decisions will be embraced and will pump new energy into our schools, especially Waubonsie Valley. I believe all three high schools will ultimately benefit greatly.
