Seattle Public Schools to Host Public Meetings on Short-Term Capacity Management Planning
Seattle Public Schools will host three community meetings to share information and ask for feedback about the district’s short-term capacity management plan for the 2012-13 school year. The district is experiencing considerable enrollment growth, and they are seeking input and working on creating a short-, intermediate- and long-term plan to address capacity.
The meetings dates and locations are as follows:
- Monday, Nov. 28: Denny International Middle School Library, 2601 S.W. Kenyon St., from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
- Tuesday, Nov. 29: Eckstein Middle School Library, 3003 N.E. 75th St., from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
- Thursday, Dec. 1: Washington Middle School Library, 2101 S. Jackson St., from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Seattle Public Schools enrollment this year is about 48,500 students. These meetings will help the Facilities and Capacity Management Advisory Committee get enrollment information, along with projections and community engagement, to analyze capacity for the 2012-13 school year.
The committee is a volunteer group with diverse interests. Technical experts and school representatives are also part of the committee. The committee is working with staff to identify and help address the short, intermediate and long term facilities challenges. As its first task, the group is focusing on capacity issues for the 2012-13 school year.
The meetings will include presentations by Seattle Public School capital projects and planning staff members, followed by a question and answer period. Comments from the community will be collected, recorded, considered and included in the district’s short-term capacity management planning process.
