High School Boundary Task Force
Seattle Public Schools has initiated a process to examine and prepare a set of recommendations to the superintendent for the purpose of being prepared for continued demands for future classroom space in our high school buildings.
At least two major variables on capacity availability within our buildings are:
- Increased enrollment growth
- The future opening of additional high school buildings
Role of the Task Force
The role of the task force is to gather, analyze, review, and consider information and data and to prepare a report to the Superintendent of Schools regarding Seattle Public Schools high school boundary issues. The report will include an examination of major capital projects that are affecting high school buildings; an exploration of past, current and possible future high school boundaries.
Our goal is for the task force to include parent/guardian, family, and community members who represent the diversity of Seattle Public Schools and who can provide valuable insight and perspective regarding the future of facilities for the students of Seattle Public Schools.
The family and community members on the committee should bring an open mind, a passion for student learning, and a willingness to engage in inquiry, meaningful dialogue, and collaboration throughout the task force process. We are especially interested in people who have not had a chance to participate in past task force or committees sponsored by Seattle Public Schools.
Expected Timeline for Task Force Meetings
Appointment of the task force will be for eight months.
Meetings will begin in March of 2017 and continue through October 31, 2017. Meetings will occur once per month, but may occur more frequently as needed.
