The board is seeking public input on zone map alternatives from Nov. 17 through Dec. 1 to help determine final board zones
Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 17 the Salem-Keizer School Board will launch a public input period to gather feedback on alternative maps for revised school board zone boundaries.
The update to the zone boundaries, or “redistricting,” is a process to distribute the population equally among electoral districts. This usually happens after the U.S. census, which takes place every 10 years. The census shows population growth or decrease in these areas, requiring population rebalancing to ensure equal representation. Special districts, such as school districts, collaborate with their communities on determining the updated school board zones.
Redistricting will NOT change school attendance area boundaries.

The board has two different proposals for redrawing the zones for the district. Proposed map alternatives for the Salem-Keizer School Board can be reviewed on the School Board Zones Redistricting webpage. You can also view the maps at the locations below.
