San Juan Unified to begin the process of adjusting middle school attendance boundaries at several middle schools

San Juan Unified is committed to investing in facilities that will support the district’s projected enrollment for the coming years. A plan was approved by the Board of Education last year to provide a dedicated home for Katherine Johnson Middle School, match projected student resident populations with the capacity of each school and help accommodate the growth expected at the middle school level at several schools. This plan included:

  • Giving Arcade Fundamental Middle School a boundary (as it is currently an open enrollment school),

  • Building a new Arcade Fundamental Middle School to increase capacity (construction is currently underway), and

  • Relocating Katherine Johnson Middle School from the Encina High School campus to a new facility at the former Creekside property (2641 Kent Drive in Sacramento - construction is currently underway)

In order to match projected student resident populations with the capacity of each school, adjustments to middle school boundaries for several schools (Arcade, Arden, Katherine Johnson, Starr King and Winston Churchill) will be necessary. Any approved boundary changes would not go into effect until the 2024-25 school year.

Learn more and watch a video (available in multiple languages) about the background of this process, timelines and opportunities for feedback by visiting Draft maps are expected to be available in late April.

Families, students, community members and staff are invited to participate in a ThoughtExchange to provide feedback to inform the middle school boundary adjustment process. Visit to participate through April 14. Paper copies are available to download and print for anyone that would prefer to participate in a print format (available in English, Spanish, Arabic, Pashto, Persian, Russian and Ukrainian).
