SCHOOL ASSIGNMENT MAPS: The next major step in Seattle Public Schools‘ move to a neighborhood-based school-attendance plan (after years of focusing on “choice”) happens today, during a School Board work session, 4-8 pm: The proposed attendance-area boundaries for each school are scheduled to go public. We’re planning to cover the meeting, which is open to the public but does not have a scheduled public comment period (saveseattleschools.blogspot.com has a great breakdown of how this works), and will post “live” updates (unlike regular board meetings, these sessions usually are not shown live online or on cable TV). The district says the maps will be linked here after the meeting begins (we’ll include the links in our coverage too). Reminder, two meetings are planned in West Seattle next week (here’s the full citywide list) for feedback on the proposed boundaries.
