On December 13, The  Menifee Union School District Governing Board approved new school boundaries for the 2023-24 school year to accompany the opening of Kathryn Newport Middle School.

With the opening of Kathryn Newport Middle School in August 2023, boundaries had to be reconfigured to determine which homes fall within the new school’s attendance area. 

To do so, the district convened a boundary committee consisting of district parents, teachers, classified staff, administrators, a member of the superintendent’s cabinet, a community organization member, and a city representative.

The district’s facilities department presented various options to the committee. Based on those options, the committee made a recommendation to the governing board.

Along with the approval of the new boundaries, the governing board appointed Nicholas Stearns as the new principal of Kathryn Newport Middle School. Stearns currently serves as the principal at Oak Meadows Elementary and will transition to his new role in February 2023.

“Our staff has worked diligently to get us to this point in MUSD’s history, and I am confident that we will make the start of Kathryn Newport Middle School a successful one,” Superintendent Root said,
