Seattle School District Proposed Growth Boundaries Affect Roosevelt

Newly proposed school boundaries in Roosevelt.

Newly proposed school attendance boundaries in Roosevelt.

Seattle Public Schools is creating new attendance area boundaries that may affect the Roosevelt Neighborhood. You have until November 20th to make your voice known to the Seattle School Board about these changes.

The new attendance area boundary changes are intended to accommodate enrollment growth and new construction. They will be approved by the Seattle School Board in November 2013 and implemented for the 2014-15 school year. The initial focus is on elementary and middle school boundaries. High school boundaries will be revised at a later date.*

Roosevelt is the smallest neighborhood within Seattle. These proposed changes, which will be voted on for approval on November 20th, would bisect our small neighborhood into even smaller pieces. This choice would prevent students living within the Roosevelt Neighborhood boundaries from attending the same schools as some of their neighbors. (See map.)

For more information about the Growth Boundaries, please visit the Seattle Public Schools website.

Contact the Board of Directors with your feedback before Nov. 20th.
