MyBallard.com has been reporting that Seattle Public Schools is working on a new student assignment plan which will reconfigure the boundaries of schools in our area. The biggest change will likely impact Ballard High, which also serves the neighborhood of Magnolia and Queen Anne. “It is possible that the lines will be drawn so high school students will not be assigned to their closest high school.”
So far, no maps have been proposed, and Seattle Public Schools is actively gathering feedback from the public on the factors that should be considered in drawing the maps. This Thursday evening, Ballard High School will host a community forum on the topic, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the library. All staff, families and community members are welcome.
