The District has completed its survey of school functional capacity. You can find the results here.
Some interesting tidbits. Here's one: the functional capacity of Thurgood Marshall is 366. There are 264 students currently enrolled. The District intends to add about 240 APP students to the school. Some E.B.O.C. students will be moved out of the building, but the new total enrollment will still be close to 500 - in a school that can only hold 366? You might think that they will have to use every available space as a classroom, except that they also expect APP families to support a whole bunch of art and music at the school. How is that going to happen without space for it?
After the 240 APP students are in the building there will only be room for 126 general education students - essentially one class per grade. One class per grade is actually more like 146. There won't be any room for any self-contained special education or bilingual classrooms at all. If there is a sibling for even 1 out of 4 APP students, the number of seats for neighborhood students will dwindle to 86. Remember that under the new assignment plan every student will be guaranteed access to their reference area school. How small will the reference area have to be to restrain the capture to less than 90 students? What if APP siblings exceed a 1:4 ratio? What if the District is right and the location increases participation in APP? Then how small will the reference area have to be?
Thurgood Marshall shouldn't have a reference area at all. It should become a choice school. That will go a long way to making sure that it won't become Madrona II.
