Student Assignment Plan Update Proposals

Several updates to the Student Assignment Plan are being proposed for School Board consideration. The plan for 2017-18 continues most of the assignment rules in effect during 2016-17, but some highlights and changes are:

Opening Cedar Park Elementary, Meany Middle, and Robert Eagle Staff Middle (attendance area) schools;

Truncating grades at Madrona - this school would become a K-5 instead of a K-8;

Establishing a GeoZone for Licton Springs K-8;

Modifying Highly Capable Cohort pathways;

Adding Chief Sealth as the southeast dual language immersion pathway high school;

Removing conflicting assignment guarantees for new to the district 6th-8th grade students;

Moving the date when waitlists are dissolved from August 15 to August 31; and

Updating school and program names and locations.

Note: The School Board is currently scheduled to vote on the 2017-18 Growth Boundaries on Nov. 16, 2016. This may require additional updates to the Student Assignment Plan.
