At its regular meeting on June 12, 2017, the Cherry Creek Schools Board of Education approved Scenario A to establish the boundaries for Middle School 11. Scenario A includes all of the Buffalo Trail Elementary School attendance area, and the Beacon Point and Wheatlands communities in the Pine Ridge Elementary School attendance area. Board members listened to community concerns and approved Scenario A as the option that best addressed those concerns.
The Board of Education will consider the proposed boundaries for Elementary #44 at its regular meeting on August 14.
