Seattle board to vote on new school boundaries tonight

seattleschoolsSEATTLE — The Seattle School Board is scheduled to take action and vote on the latest draft of growth boundaries for the district, but dozens of parents are angered over the proposal that has children bused to schools miles from where they live.

The Seattle School board has heard public comment on the issue for month as several community members have voiced their concerns.

Parents say their children are being shuffled around too much and they need a sense of community and stability.

School board members say boundaries must be redrawn to accommodate exponential growth in the district.

Tonight’s school board meeting begins at 4:15 pm. The meeting is at the John Stanford Support Center at 2445 3rd Ave. S. Public comment on any school issues begins at 5 pm. The public comment portion of the meeting is already full and a waiting list to speak has nearly 40 people signed up.

Concerned parents can still voice their opinion over the boundaries emailing growthboundaries@seattleschools.org.

    Why should students and families suffer because the teacher's union want smaller class sizes and some individuals on the board want to engineer the community?
