Elementary Attendance Area Rebalancing (Henry)

Benchley/Weinberger and Gage Elementary Schools in the 2023-24 School Year

APPROVED BY BOARD OF EDUCATION ON JANUARY 24, 2023 (Link to Board Documents). 


What is being proposed??

Attendance boundary revisions are proposed for Benchley/ Weinberger and Gage Elementary schools in the 2023-24 school year.  Specific sections of Gage’s attendance area will be reassigned to Benchley/Weinberger.  The middle or high school assignment will not change. Students remain in Pershing Middle and Henry High.

You may participate in this process by responding to the Survey linked at the bottom of this page. You may also view a one-page informational flier in English and Spanish.


Who is affected?

New students beginning in Fall 2023 will be subject to the new attendance areas.  Current students at either school are not required to change schools. Future students/siblings of current Gage students who live in the area of change may attend Gage under the “legacy” policy, as long as the older sibling is still at Gage at the same time.

why are these revisions being proposed?

These changes are necessary to rebalance the number of elementary age students living in each school’s area. Currently Gage has about four times as many students living in its attendance area as live in Benchley/Weinberger. This has resulted in overcrowding at Gage.  The proposed changes will result in more balanced student populations between the two school campuses.
