New attendance area boundaries

New elementary attendance area boundaries
Posted on 03/24/2023

Elementary school boundaries will change, starting in the 2023-24 school year.

The new boundaries come after months of work analyzing enrollment data, transportation information, and community feedback by the Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC).

The Stanwood-Camano School Board formally adopted the revised elementary school boundaries on March 21, 2023. Middle school boundaries are not changing.

A student attends a school based on their address. Use the following tools to find your school or to locate school boundaries:

The goal was to balance enrollment as best as possible to provide students with equitable access to resources — all while addressing as many needs as possible from our growing community. You can read about the process, see data and graphics, and find previous CFAC communications to the community HERE.


The boundary changes will impact about 350 of our 2,025 elementary school students. So, why is it important enough to change where some children go to school? Simply put: Balanced is better.

  • It would allow all students in our district more equitable access to instruction and support

  • Common areas — lunchrooms, playgrounds, gyms — are less crowded, easier to access and safer to monitor

  • At overcrowded schools, the wear and tear on buildings is accelerated and cost more in repairs
