    High School Boundary Updates and Decision Timeline

    The Seattle School Board discussed high school boundary changes for 2019-20 again at the School Board meeting on January 3, 2018. The discussion will provide additional direction for Board Introduction of the high school boundary changes which is now anticipated to take place on January 17.

    Central Office Staff have created additional boundary scenarios to be taken into consideration. These additional scenarios respond to feedback received from families and show the impact of potential Highly Capable pathway changes on different boundary options. You can view these scenarios on our Jan. 5 task force meeting update webpage.

    No recommendation is being proposed at this time. The School Board discussed potential options for highly capable pathways at the high school level and boundary changes with the opening of Lincoln High School on January 3.


    During the School Board meeting on January 3 the board discussed the potential options.

    The High School Boundary Task Force met on January 5 to review the guidance from the School Board meeting on January 3. 

    There will be a Board work session on January 10 to discuss high school boundaries and further narrow down a recommendation for the anticipated School Board vote on January 31.

    This timeline allows affected families to know what the 2019-20 boundaries will be prior to Open Enrollment for School Choice, which begins on February 5, 2018 and ends on February 16, 2018. Read more about Open Enrollment for School Choice.
