The Salt Lake Board of Education wants to re-examine a proposal to shift the boundary between Uintah and Emerson elementary schools.

The proposal would move the boundary between the two elementary schools from Harvard Avenue to Yale Avenue and 13th East.Last summer, a parent petitioned for the change, saying the current boundary cuts off two households with elementary school-age children from their natural neighborhood.

The boundary modification has been approved by the community councils of both elementary schools and recommended for approval by Superintendent John W. Bennion.

The proposed change would affect only a few current students.
