As reported at the West Seattle Blog, there are 12 individuals and one union suing the district over the Denny-Sealth combined campus. From the brief:
"The legal documents say the individuals are concerned about “property values, crime, and other effects” of the move, as well as the safety of a 6-12 campus; the union, which represents classified school workers, says it’s concerned about job loss. The appeal also contends, among other things, that the decision was made without “following the procedural requirements for citizen involvement required by the school closure statute.” The appeal is filed in King County Superior Court.
Hmm, it sounds like a weak case except for the procedural requirements. While they are not technically closing Denny, they are closing the building (and so it becomes extra inventory). I think there are likely rules about this which may or may not have been followed.
Stay tuned; this may not be the only lawsuit the district faces from that area.
