St. Vrain Valley board approves enrollment boundaries for new Erie, Frederick schools

Parents looking to make school choice decisions or get more involved in planning for St. Vrain Valley's two new schools can move forward now that official school boundaries are in place.

The St. Vrain Valley School District on Wednesday unanimously approved enrollment boundaries for both the 900-student PK-8 school in Erie and the 525-student elementary school in Frederick's Wyndham Hill neighborhood.

"I really want to make sure we set future boards up to make successful boundary decisions," said board Vice President Joie Siegrist. "We need to think about now, but also five or six years down the road."

Planning teams now can start working on naming the schools, while the district will refine its enrollment projections so the schools can start hiring. Both the new and existing schools also will have space available for open enrollment, with the new Erie school already receiving 200 open enrollment applications.
