Kindergarten Enrollment night, 5:30-7:00 pm, Northgate Elementary, open to all.
Wednesday, Jan. 29th
• Oversight Work Session: Enrollment & Planning (4:30-5:30 PM)
• Work Session: Budget (5:30-7 PM)
• Work Session: Series 1000 Policies (7-8 PM)
Nothing attached for Budget so clearly the Enrollment Work Session is the most interesting.
Fun fact: the district has no permanent Enrollment director but yes, they have a demographer (and a PhD at that), Natasha Rivers. The interim director appears to come from an IT consulting firm. The district has also hired a communications firm, Write as Rain, for "growth boundaries communications."
Page 5 is all about Stakeholder Engagement and Public Information.
Page 11 on Opportunities and Risks is also worth reading.
Then we get to the percentage projections page for elementary, middle and high school. Sober reading. Elementary looks like the overwhelming majority of elementary schools are 95%+ full. The Middle school page does not use the same numbering as elementary and high (no explanation given). High schools look the same as elementary...right now.
