Public Notice: Thornydale Elementary & Associated Boundary Change
Due to a consistent decline in enrollment and the need to ensure school sustainability and fiscal responsibility, the Governing Board of the Marana Unified School District voted on Thursday, December 6, 2018, to close Thornydale Elementary School, effective June 2019. Thornydale Elementary School is located at 7651 N. Old Father Drive, Tucson, AZ 85741 and serves grades K-6.
The Governing Board also voted to approve new attendance boundaries for Quail Run Elementary and Butterfield Elementary. The approved attendance boundary changes the boundary currently serving the Thornydale Elementary area to Quail Run Elementary or Butterfield Elementary, effective June 2019.
Prior to the Governing Board’s vote, a Public Meeting was held on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 in which the Governing Board heard reasons for or against the closure of Thornydale Elementary School. Individuals were also encouraged to provide input through email, letters, and the District’s “Let’s Talk” communication tool if they were unable to attend the Public Meeting.
