The Santa Monica-Malibu Board of Education has changed school boundaries to absorb students who will be affected by the closure of Madison Elementary School in September.
Under the changes approved by the board Monday night, students living west of 12th Street and north of Colorado Avenue will go to Roosevelt Elementary. Students living east of 12th Street will attend McKinley and those living west of 12th and south of Colorado will attend John Muir.
The board will decide whether to provide transportation for the students April 8.
School officials said that the changes will alter the minority composition at the three schools. McKinley is expected to have 492 students with a 61% minority enrollment, Roosevelt 577 students with a 28% minority population and Muir 362 students and 64% minority.
Minority students assigned to McKinley and Muir may voluntarily transfer on a space-available basis to Franklin, Roosevelt or the Alternative School.
