Seattle Public Schools Revising Attendance Area Boundaries

The Seattle School Board has begun the process of revising the attendance area boundaries for elementary and middle schools across the city to reduce overcrowding at some schools. Notably, under the draft boundaries [PDF] presented to the School Board on Tuesday children in Belltown, downtown and South Lake Union would no longer attend John Hay Elementary and McClure Middle School on Queen Anne but rather will attend Lowell Elementary and the new Meany Middle School on Capitol Hill.

The final boundaries will be approved by the Board in November. Members of the community are invited to Walk the Boundaries and submit feedback to growthboundaries@seattleschools.org or at one of the community meetings scheduled next week.
