Fall 2025 Introduces Aligned School Assignments

Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 2/27/2023 5:00:00 PM

Dear WLWV Parent/Guardians,

As parents prepare for enrollment decisions this Fall, West Linn-Wilsonville School District wants to alert families of the discontinuation of the “choice zone” areas starting Fall 2025, in an effort to improve bus route efficiency (on time), associated costs, and reduce fuel emissions in our neighborhoods.

District Phases Out Choice Zone Areas, Fall 2025

The current district “choice zones” allows some families to choose between two schools and receive bus transportation for either choice. This results in the district often sending 2-3 buses into the same neighborhoods causing redundancy, congestion, and associated costs for additional buses and drivers. Upon the opening of the new primary school located in the Frog Pond development area of Wilsonville in Fall 2025, the District will discontinue the “choice zone” boundary areas for school attendance. 

Starting in Fall 2025, students residing in their primary school boundaries will be assigned middle schools and high schools, unless they receive an approved In-District Transfer Request to attend a different school. The WLWV school district is generous with its In-District Transfer Requests as long as there is space and capacity available at the requested school. Bus transportation, however, would only be available within the residing and assigned school area.

Adjustment in Fall 2025 Improves Bus Route Efficiency, Costs & Eco-Responsibility

By discontinuing the “choice zone” areas, the District will be able to significantly improve bus route efficiency, budget management, and ecological responsibility.
