New School Boundaries Approved for the Opening of Deer Creek Elementary

December 09, 2021

A recommendation to redefine school boundaries was passed by the Board of School Trustees 6-1 on Wednesday night. The change is necessary to open Deer Creek Elementary and help ease overcrowding at nearby Southeastern Elementary School.

As part of the approved plan (Scenario D), the following neighborhoods will be reassigned elementary boundaries starting in school year 2022-23:

Reassigned to Deer Creek Elementary -

Autumn Breeze Apartments

Deer Path West

Meadows of Shelborne

Blue Ridge

Flagstone Woods

Summerland Park

Waterman Crossing

Reassigned to Harrison Parkway Elementary -

Deer Chase Apartments

Reassigned to Thorpe Creek Elementary -


All current Durbin Elementary students will also be attending Deer Creek next fall as the building will be repurposed for other needs.  

“This process is never easy and often filled with mixed emotions. We were faced with the difficult challenge of moving students to a different school to open Deer Creek Elementary and lower enrollment at Southeastern Elementary,” said Dr. Yvonne Stokes. “Because of that, we spent a considerable amount of time examining every possible scenario and listening to the input of our stakeholders.”

The redefining school boundaries process began with three scenarios. A fourth option and a modified version was added for additional review after receiving feedback from board members and the community.

The scenarios were closely examined and discussed by administration before Wednesday’s vote.

More information will be released in the coming weeks for those students and families impacted by the changes. Hamilton Southeastern Schools will be working closely with all families to ensure a smooth transition. Details about open houses, school tours and other welcome events will be forthcoming.
