School Boundary Review Committee
Boundary Review Committee (BRC) Meetings and Documents
The School Boundary Review Committee (BRC) was established in the Fall of 2019 to review elementary school boundaries. The necessity of this work stems from the addition of two new elementary schools being constructed for Wallace and Lexington Elementary Schools. Lexington Elementary School, scheduled to open in Fall 2021, will combine to house approximately the same number of students currently at Beacon Hill and Catlin Elementary students. Currently, Kelso School District has seven (7) elementary schools, which will drop to six (6) following new construction. The BRC's task is to recommend to the School Board boundary changes to accommodate the new construction.
