School Boundary Changes for Attendance Area Schools

Why School Boundaries Change

Sometimes changes to boundaries for attendance area schools are needed to balance student enrollment. They are necessary because of changes in the number of students enrolled in Seattle Public Schools. The district is also improving schools by building new or replacement schools, modernizing and opening closed buildings, and constructing additions at some schools. This construction can sometimes lead to a boundary change.

Upcoming Boundary Changes

There are no boundary changes currently scheduled for the 2023-24 school year.

Community Engagement

When the district is working on boundary changes, we hold community meetings to connect with families. Typically, these meetings begin in the spring a year prior to a boundary change.

Families are notified about these meetings via the School Messenger email system and through each school’s communication channels. Please ensure your school has the correct email address for your family in order to receive these notices. We also post meeting notices on the district website, and the meetings are added to the district calendar.
