Duluth School Board adopts new high school boundary
By Sarah Horner

Duluth School Board members voted tonight to set Sixth Avenue East as the new boundary line between the east and west middle and high schools.

Students who live west of Sixth Avenue East will go to the new western middle school and Denfeld High School. Students living east will attend the new eastern middle school and high school. The new line, which is in response to the district’s decision to consolidate from three to two high schools and four to two middle schools, extends from Sixth Avenue East to Kenwood Avenue to Howard Gnesen Road to Airport Road. It attempts to provide more balance in the number of low-income and minority students than an earlier boundary line considered at 14th Avenue East.

The boundary line will not go into effect until the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year at the earliest.
