During a Seattle Public Schools “Board Operations Committee as a Whole” presentation last night, the Capacity Management Team presented a list of recommendations for short-term capacity management during the 2012-13 school year. The entire presentation can be seen here, but by the looks of it, other solutions are being offered to remedy the overcrowding at John Stanford International School:
As you can see from the slide pictured above, the two options before contemplating the change in the Wallingford neighborhood school boundaries would be either to use the school’s music room as an additional classroom or place a portable on school grounds.
As we mentioned earlier in the week, a final draft of the Short Term Capacity Management plan and the New Student Assignment Plan Transition Plan will be presented at the next board meeting on January 4 and then put to a vote on January 18. Reader Mike has also told us that District II School Board Member Sherry Carr’s next community meeting will be on Saturday, January 14 from 8:30am – 10:00am at Bethany Community Church – CE Brick Room, 8023 Green Lake Drive.
