Understanding Duval's proposed boundary and program changes: Resources from the Jacksonville Public Education Fund

 In the fall of 2015, school district leaders and community members are reviewing an extensive proposal for changes to programs and boundaries for a wide swath of schools on the Westside and Northside, as well as parts of Arlington and the Southside. 

This page will keep you updated with the latest research, analysis and information gathered by the Jacksonville Public Education Fund as we work to inform and mobilize the community to advocate for universally high-quality public schools for all children.

The Jacksonville Public Education Fund has not taken an official position on these changes. Right now, we are working to better understand them, and, as is customary for us, advocate for the inclusion of community voice in district decision-making. 

Do you have questions about what's happening, or ideas for our research team? Let us know! Email info@jaxpef.org to let us know your thoughts.
