Everyone is never going to be happy with any boundary change but it seems odd to exclude Middlefield residents direct opposite from Addison from attending that school. Would be better if they used Lincoln/Guinda as the boundary on that side of Middlefield.

A bonus for teachers is long overdue, especially at the middle and high school levels. Dealing with an overfilled class of students is never easy, but dealing with an overfilled class of adolescents is strenuous at best. There should be some reward for heroism!

- how many kids are expected to be shifted over to Hays from Addison by this boundary change?

- And how many kids are expected from the BMR development at 801 Alma?
