SPS Student Assignment Plan Open House Meetings — Oct. 23-Nov. 9

In the 2019-20 school year, Seattle Public Schools will reopen Lincoln High School, a comprehensive high school in Northwest Seattle. Reopening Lincoln will require redrawing of the high school boundaries, which identifies the district areas that will feed into each high school.

At the same time, the district is revising the Student Assignment Plan (SAP). The SAP ensures that students have access to services they need and outlines options for programs and enrollment outside students’ attendance area school. One area of review is advanced learning.

These bodies of work (Student Assignment Plan, high school boundaries and Advanced Learning) are interconnected and require some level of community engagement. The district is committed to keeping students, families and staff informed and engaged every step of the way through this process.

Student Assignment Plan
Community: District-wide
Engagement Dates: Oct. 23 – Nov. 9, 2017

Topic: The district’s Open Enrollment process begins in February. Our goal is to have changes to the SAP in place by January. The Enrollment Department is scheduling a series of opportunities for our students, families and communities to engage with key staff leading the work. The district will be hosting open house style meetings to share SAP updates, recommended adjustments to Advanced Learning and gather feedback on High School Boundary scenarios. Below are the scheduled open house meetings. You do not need to RSVP, just show up!
