SHAWNEE MISSION, KS (KCTV) -

It’s back to the drawing board for school leaders in the Shawnee Mission School District, and on Tuesday they’ll present boundary changes that could affect families from at least seven elementary schools.

During a meeting on May 22, the board says they heard the public’s concerns and wanted more time to make adjustments.

School officials drew up a revised map that highlights the proposed boundary changes for the 2018 to 2019 school year.

They have already voted in changes for the schools east of Interstate 35 and on Tuesday, they’ll discuss the boundary changes for the schools west of the interstate.

District officials say the goal is the same. They say changes are needed to address four specific needs.

Those needs include overcrowding in some of the schools, effective use of other schools that are under capacity, support for opening a new school and anticipating needs in areas where there is new home construction.

The board could vote on the proposed changes or they can ask for another revised map.

Their decision depends on the questions and concerns of those who show up to Tuesday’s meeting.

The meeting starts at 4 p.m. at the district's Center for Academic Achievement.
