• As building projects are completed and demographics of student populations shift, NPS periodically reviews student assignments to ensure balanced enrollment at its elementary, middle, and high schools. At certain times, the Student Assignment Working Group (SAWG) is convened to consider larger scale changes to boundary lines as school buildings are replaced or renovated. At other times, smaller shifts may be considered when specific issues in enrollment related to changing demographics are identified. 

    The Phase 1 and Phase 2 pages provide information on the comprehensive SAWG work done in 2014-15 and 2017-18. The Feeder Pattern page addresses a specific issue of student enrollment at Bigelow and Day Middle Schools for the 2022-23 school year.
