*See governance policy GP-2-E1, School Board Legal Status, for a description of the director district boundaries. The boundaries do not correspond directly to neighborhood school boundaries. Choice schools are not listed in specific director districts since these schools draw students from throughout the district. Each director must live within their director district but represents the district as a whole. The boundaries are shown on this map.
