Informational Community Meetings on Boundary and Student Assignment Plan Updates for 2016-17

Each fall, Seattle Public Schools holds community meetings to share information and answer questions about the changes for the following year. Three community meetings are scheduled in October to discuss the changes to school boundaries and the student assignment plan for the 2016-17 school year. These changes are not for the current school year.

The boundary changes being implemented next year are all in West Seattle near Arbor Heights Elementary, which will open in a new building in fall 2016. Boundary and geo-zone changes for the other schools opening in 2016 have already been adjusted.

Additionally, the district is proposing minor revisions to the Student Assignment Plan to streamline and clarify questions that have been raised over the past several years. Revisions include elimination of the distance tiebreaker and other conflicting statements. Once adopted, this will be the final implementation of the Student Assignment Plan.   At the meetings, staff members will present information, ask for comments and answer questions. All meetings are 6:30 P.M. – 7:15 P.M.
