Just a reminder that Seattle Public Schools is hosting an open house on Thursday night to discuss proposed high school boundary changes.
The open house is from 6:30-8 p.m. Thursday at Ballard High School, 1418 NW 65th St.
The boundary changes would take effect in fall 2019. Boundaries are changing because district enrollment continues to grow, and because a new high school, Lincoln, will open in Wallingford.
For more information, see the High School Boundary Changes webpage, and the school board’s top three potential boundary change scenarios on the High School Boundary Task Force Recommendations webpage.
For Ballard High School, the board’s preferred proposed boundary changes would take some kids who live less than a mile from Ballard H.S. and send them to Ingraham High School, at 1819 N. 135th St., more than four miles away. North Ballard and Crown Hill north of 85th Street would move from Ingraham to Ballard. Some Phinney Ridge and Greenwood students currently slated for Roosevelt would move to Ingraham, while some south Phinney students currently slated for Roosevelt would move to Ballard.
If you can’t make Thursday’s open houses, there are three more coming up (all are from 6:30-8 p.m.):
- Mon., Oct. 30, McClure Middle School, 1915 1st Ave. W.
- Wed., Nov. 8, Cleveland High School, 5511 15th Ave. S.
- Thurs., Nov. 9, West Seattle High School, 3000 California Ave. SW
These community meetings also will discuss other updates to the Student Assignment Plan, including special education, school choice, and advanced learning opportunities in high schools, which would take effect in fall of 2018.
