Eden Prairie Set to Redraw School Boundaries

In an attempt to enhance the diversity of the student body in its elementary schools, the Eden Prairie school board is expected to redraw its school district boundaries in a meeting on Tuesday.

As the Eden Prairie News reported, the school board originally discussed changing the boundaries in September, and now that proposals have been examined, the school is expected to approve a new plan.

According to the Star Tribune, the new boundaries are designed to balance the school size and diversity of Eden Prairie's five elementary schools.

Numerous other school districts in the metro area, facing similar problems with balancing size and demographics of student bodies, are expected to follow Eden Prairie's example if the redistricting plan is accepted, according to the Star Tribune.

"The opportunity for Eden Prairie is to show how to be a leader in a whole new world," said state Rep. Carlos Mariani of St. Paul.
