On Nov. 16, 2016, the Seattle School Board approved changes to the 2013 Growth Boundaries plan for implementation in the 2017-18 school year.
Many schools will retain their current boundaries. Overall, as a result of the board vote, there are only two changes to elementary school boundaries, and the new Meany and Eagle Staff middle schools will open with minor adjustments to their previously approved boundaries.
We know changing schools can be challenging for students and families. If your student is changing schools next year under the amended implementation plan, the principal at the receiving school (your students’ school next year) will be working with your current principal to help create a smooth transition.
You can read the approved 2017-18 plan and the amendment details on the Growth Boundaries webpage.
