UPDATE (8:30 P.M., 8/7): KHSD Board of Trustees approves boundary changes for schools in northwest Bakersfield. The Board approved Plan A, which will affect incoming high school freshmen for the 2018-2019 school year.


Monday evening the Kern High School District's Board of Trustees will vote on a proposal for new school boundaries that would impact high school students in northwest Bakersfield. 

Growth in the Northwest part of Bakersfield is the main reason the district is saying these changes are needed. Frontier High School officials say there were nearly 2,400 students this past year, while Centennial High School had around 2,000. 

Some think a solution to this would be redrawing boundary lines, which would affect incoming freshman started with the 2018-2019 school year.  

Three new proposals were presented at the June 26th meeting, Monday the board will vote those. 

KHSD has hosted open forums for parents and students at North High, Centennial High, Frontier High and Shafter High. 

The open session will be held at the Board Room located in the EOC Administrative Building at the district office located at 5801 Sundale Avenue in Bakersfield. 

The open meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m.
