Student Assignment Meetings Announced

Tell your friends, your neighbors, anyone you know with a child who may be enrolling in Seattle Public Schools - the district has announced public meetings on this issue.

Here's the web page at the district's website.

Here are the meeting dates:

Thursday, October 23, 2008
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Ingraham High School
1819 North 135th Street

Interpreters: Somali, Spanish, Vietnamese

Monday, October 27, 2008
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Rainier Beach High School
Paul Robeson Performing Arts Center
8815 Seward Park Avenue South

Interpreters: Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Vietnamese

Saturday, November 1, 2008
10:00 AM - 12:00 Noon
John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence
2445 3rd Avenue South

Interpreters: Amharic, Chinese, Somali, Spanish, Tigrigna, Vietnamese

It doesn't say on the website but I believe they are still aiming for a new plan for enrollment in Spring of 2010 with students under the new plan (well, many of them) starting in Fall of 2010.

I cannot emphasize enough the need to attend a meeting to get a full story. The next meetings after these will likely be in Spring 2009 and will probably have one plan with several options. The time to tell the district what you want is NOW.
