From the District:
The District invites the public to learn about the latest recommendations at a community meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 11. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions. District leadership continues to meet with school communities in each region.
In addition, the Seattle School Board will hold a Work Session Wednesday, Dec. 5 to study both the Short Term Capacity Management Plan and the New Student Assignment Plan (NSAP) Transition Plan for the 2013-14 school year.
Both issues are scheduled to be introduced at the Jan. 9, 2013 School Board meeting, with board action on both short-term capacity management and NSAP Transition Plan scheduled for the Jan. 23, 2013 board meeting.

I think it will be interesting to learn how the district and Schools First plan to sell to this to the general public. The regular line of "it's for the kids" would come at a difficult time to many so I would hope there would be a fresh approach to BEX IV.
End of update
Still need to confirm this from the district but I got it from a reliable source.
There is to be a community meeting on December 11th from 7-8:30 p.m. at the JSCEE auditorium.
I will confirm and get details but a heads up if you are looking to advocate for your community or want more answers.
