Work has begun to create the Transition Plan for 2011-12, which will set out rules for the continued phasing-in of the New Student Assignment Plan. Seattle Public Schools is seeking input from families, staff and community members to help shape the Transition Plan. At a series of formal meetings and informal drop-in sessions, staff will share data and information about enrollment trends, options to balance enrollment with capacity and other information related to capacity management.

Among the topics included in the discussion will be development of geographic zones for option schools. The geographic zone will provide a tiebreaker for students who live within a defined area in proximity to the school. Option schools include STEM@Cleveland, NOVA, The Center School and AS#1 high schools; Jane Addams, Salmon Bay, TOPS, Pathfinder, Orca and South Shore K-8 schools; and Thornton Creek and Queen Anne elementary schools.

Amharic, Chinese, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Tigrigna and Vietnamese interpretation services will be provided at the November 8 meeting.
