In 2013, the Seattle School Board approved a series of boundary changes for elementary and middle school attendance areas. These were the result of a process of public input for school boundaries and the student assignment plan, and changes are being implemented over time.
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.
Growth Boundaries Community Meetings
Each fall, Seattle Public Schools holds informational community meetings to provide information and answer questions. Three community meetings are scheduled in October to discuss the changes to school boundaries and the student assignment plan for the 2016-17 year.
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.
