School Board to vote on Metzger Elementary School boundary change

Students living in a section Tigard between Highway 217 and Greenburg Road could attend Charles F. Tigard Elementary School, if the Tigard-Tualatin School Board approves a plan at its Aug. 10 meeting.Planning to enroll your children at Metzger Elementary School this fall? There’s a chance they may in fact be headed somewhere else.

The Tigard-Tualatin School Board will consider at its Monday meeting a boundary change which would move some future Metzger students to Charles F. Tigard Elementary, located two miles away in the center of Tigard.

The change, if adopted, would impact homes between Southwest 95th Avenue and Southwest Hall Boulevard, between Greenburg Road and Highway 217.

According to the district, the change is necessary in order to balance out students between the two schools.

Enrollment at Metzger Elementary continues to rise and is expected to reach about 700 students over the next few years, according to a 10-year enrollment projection by Portland State University. Meanwhile C.F.T. will remain stagnant, the projection claims, and is expected to include fewer than 600 students.

The proposal would affect about 50 students who currently live in the area, the district said. Those students will be allowed to continue at Metzger, but new students who move into the area will be assigned to Charles F. Tigard.

The Tigard-Tualatin School Board will meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the district’s headquarters, Hibbard Administration Building, 6960 S.W. Sandburg St., in Tigard.
