5 Uses most recent census information Recognizes existing diversity within smaller geographic areas Each cluster falls within the diversity guideline No cluster has a majority of students from Category 1 Opportunities to apply for magnets remain the same

6 We expect more students could be assigned closer to home than under the current plan Reduces longest bus rides for students in most clusters Current bus routes should accommodate students who are grandfathered Most transportation routes to day care centers will remain the same Additional buses will not need to be purchased to support this plan

8 Students will apply in kindergarten only Minimal boundary changes at elementary level to help with capacity issues Elementary schools will be arranged in 12 clusters Students in K-4 in impacted by cluster or boundary changes will be grandfathered to remain at current school
