Now, as I belatedly comb through e-mails from blog readers over the summer, I find that a similar proposal is once again being discussed.
According to one blog reader,
The staff at Lowell Grade school have informed me (in June of 2008), that they have been informed by the Seattle School District administration, that Lowell Grade school will be broken up, with all special education staff and children then being scattered through Seattle general education schools, following the spring 2009 school quarter.
NOTE: The Seattle School district administration now classifies each individual "special needs" classroom as a "program", which has removed the classrooms from Seattle School district School Board control and oversight.
Does anyone else have more information about what is being proposed?
