Dear Neighbors and Interested Folks,
The Kellogg Middle School Winter 2020 Update can be found at this link: KMS – Winter 2020 Update
There is so much happening now on the ground and behind the scenes as we make way for the Fall 2021 grand opening of PPS’s first brand new Middle School in decades.
Feeder schools for the new Kellogg Middle School will be determined by Enrollment and Program Balancing. Enrollment and Program balancing is a multi-year process during which time PPS will gather information, hear from our stakeholders and communities, provide public information, and develop a plan to better serve families and students. The final decision on this round of boundaries and enrollment balancing that will determine the schools that will feed into Kellogg are scheduled to be finished by January 2021.
As the Outreach Coordinator for the Kellogg Team I will be resuming bi-annual meetings with the impacted Neighborhood Associations and organizations throughout the remainder of the project. When January 2021 rolls around I will be seeking volunteers who might be interested in forming the new KMS Parent Teachers Association.

The email above mentions the Enrollment & Program Balancing initiative from PPS. There is an opportunity right now for you to provide input on the process. Please visit the Enrollment & Program Balancing website for more information.
Before you complete the survey, you should familiarize yourself with the three policies that are being changed:

The policy establishes a process for assigning students to neighborhood schools, and provides consistent guidelines for changes to school boundaries.
4.10.051-P: “Student Enrollment and Transfers.”
The policy intends to provide equal access to educational options for all resident students through an open, fair and accessible process and to promote equity and diversity in student transfers and admissions.
6.10.022-P: “Education Options Policy.”
The policy seeks to implement goals by offering students and their families the support they need to make informed choices among a variety of educational options, and to provide consistent guidelines and procedures for educational options.
