Please report in here as you hear from your school. This seems to happen every single year and throws schools off kilter and this should not happen like this at the start of a school year.
The district will not give me this information. I will file a public disclosure request to both the district and OSPI and see who gets it to me first.
Update: from Olympic View:
23 kids under original and it will affect 3 staff positions. 23 students across all 6 grades. (Note: one staff position is .4 so it's 2.4 employees.)
I wanted to share with you that 52,399 students are attending Seattle Public Schools this year, according to our 10 day headcount (9/30). That is an increase of 411 students over last year. While we have more students this year, the number is still lower than we projected by 675. Here at Jane Addams Middle School we have experienced lower 8th grade enrollment than projected, which has lead the district to reduce our budget by 2.0 certificated staff with an additional .4 reduction in certificated Special Education staff.
We have an immediate plan to reduce sections of Social Studies, Special Education and Science as well as to shift funding from a variety of areas. We may have the opportunity to delay these changes until the semester. However, if Jane Addams is required to reduce the entire 2.0 FTE, at the semester we will need to make reductions in the above areas as well as in music, world language, and in math. Many student schedule changes will need to occur.
