Due to school closures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the anticipated boundary adjustment decision was postponed in March, 2020.
Corvallis School District boundary areas will remain the same until the Corvallis School Board takes further action.
To accommodate the 2021 enrollment bubble at Linus Pauling Middle School, two temporary modular buildings will house four classrooms on the school campus. There will be an aluminum landing between the units, a ramp down to the sidewalk, and a new raised pedestrian walkway for safe access to the modular buildings.

About the Boundary Review
After the passage of the $199.9 million bond in May 2018, Corvallis School District started planning for the design and construction of new and renovated school facilities. The bond program includes increased capacity throughout the district in K-5 schools but with our current school boundaries, we have more elementary schools feeding into one high school, resulting in an imbalance in middle and high school enrollments.
In order to utilize our school capacities at optimal enrollment levels and to stay on the same time schedule as the bond program, the Corvallis School Board reviewed and approved the boundary review process at its August 15, 2019 meeting. The process will be facilitated by FLO Analytics, a consulting firm with expertise in data analysis and experience in assisting school districts with boundary changes.
The process will include a Boundary Review Task Force (BRTF) that will meet nearly weekly from early December until April 2020. The BRTF will be made up of building principals and parent/guardian and community volunteer representatives from all neighborhood boundary areas. Meetings will be facilitated by FLO Analytics.
The Task Force’s charge will be to create a recommendation for adjusted boundaries that balances enrollments across high school feeder schools, prepares schools for growth, and identifies implications for the 2018 bond program. This work will result in a recommendation report for adjusted boundaries to be presented to the School Board in April 2020 for consideration and approval.
Using the district’s boundary adjustment guiding principles and equity focus, review the springboard proposal to develop a consensus set of recommendations that:
- creates a balance between high school attendance feeder systems
- aligns future student populations with future school capacities
- identifies implications for the 2018 Bond Program
- intentionally engage community members of underserved, diverse or
marginalized individuals and groups
