HILLSBORO, Ore. – The Hillsboro School Board on Tuesday approved a plan that will move more than 300 elementary school students to new schools next year.

The boundary change was approved to accommodate Hillsboro’s growing population.

The largest group of students affected by the board’s vote -- 135 kids -- will move from Quatama Elementary School to West Union. Another 12 students will move from Quatama to Lenox Elementary School.

98 students will move from Tobias Elementary School to Indian Hills in Aloha.

An additional 35 students will move from Orenco to Quatama, and 34 students will move from Witch Hazel to Rosedale

The changes do not affect which middle and high schools students will attend.
