At their latest meeting, the District 204 school board approved attendance boundary adjustments.
About 300 students from Cowlishaw, Longwood, and Young Elementary Schools will be reassigned to Brookdale, Brooks, Owen, Steck, and White Eagle.

The measure is effective for the 2013-2014 school year and only impacts about 1.2% of the district’s student population.
