We're halfway into the first year of Columbia School District’s re-alignment, the most noticeable change being the addition of Battle High School. KBIA is looking at the process of re-alignment, its effects, and what the district is planning for the future.
Kansas City based firm RSP & Associates is crunching numbers for the current round of Columbia Public Schools (CPS) district re-alignment. The same firm was also hired to do data analysis for the district re-alignments leading up to the opening of Battle High School.
The firm collected data on the district including enrollment and the number of students on free and reduced lunch. The data was used to create different scenarios of boundary re-alignment which were then sent to the secondary enrollment planning committee for consideration.
