first_imgWoodland Public Schools will go through some previously announced reconfiguration at the start of the 2019-2020 school year, and the school board recently approved some new boundaries for the changing district. Woodland Primary School, a K-1 school, and Woodland Intermediate School, which houses grades 2 to 4, will both become K-4 schools next school year. That will give the district three K-4 schools, along with Yale Elementary School. Woodland Middle School will continue to serve fifth- through eighth-graders, and Woodland High School will continue as a traditional 9-12 school.The board approved new boundary lines for the three K-4 schools at its most recent meeting. The primary school, known for now as the west side school, will serve students in the district west of Interstate 5 and all those who live in Clark County. The intermediate school, referred to in the plan as the east side school, will serve students east of I-5, north of Lewis River and west of Cowlitz-Skamania Fire District 7’s Station 3, 8020 Lewis River Road, Ariel. Yale Elementary School’s boundary will be everything east of the fire station. The boundary discussion was done using feedback from current district families, ranking the following issues as most important when reconfiguring elementary school boundaries: similar student populations, childcare concerns and after-school activities.District officials are working to handle anticipated growth in the coming years. Woodland’s population in 2017 was 6,138, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates, and the city’s most recent comprehensive plan estimates Woodland’s population will be 9,274 in 2036.last_img read more
