The Shawnee Mission school board on Monday night unanimously approved new attendance boundaries for Briarwood Elementary in Prairie Village.

Why it matters: The new boundaries, which are set to take effect in the 2025-26 school year, are aimed at alleviating overcrowding at the school near 86th Street and Nall Avenue.
