The public is invited to give feedback on Lincoln Public Schools' biggest overhaul of attendance areas in nearly 15 years at four forums in August.

LPS will hold three in-person forums: Aug. 3 at Scott Middle School, Aug. 4 at Meadow Lane Elementary School and Aug. 5 at Arnold Elementary, all starting at 5 p.m. A virtual forum will be held Aug. 9 at noon.

The forums will give the public a chance to give input and ask questions of the Lincoln Board of Education and LPS staff about changes to attendance boundaries at the elementary, middle and high school levels.
