Sound Off: A long time ago, there was some discussion around making the middle schools feeder schools into high schools. Is this discussion still active?
Julie Boyle, a spokeswoman for the district, provided this information: The district does not have true feeder schools and, while the topic has been discussed in the past, it is not currently a board goal. Fifteenth Street serves as the boundary for the high schools, with most West Middle School students going to Free State High School and South Middle School students going to Lawrence High School, though the attendance areas for Liberty Memorial Central and Southwest middle schools are split between high schools. The attendance areas can be seen online here: http://bit.ly/SlacvH.
