Bill’s comment expresses the Board’s recommendation. We will be asking the community to vote on this Saturday:
“Saturday’s SPCC meeting is an opportunity to meet and join Squire Park neighbors who need your help in carrying on an important effort for neighborhood children and schools. The effort was described in CD News: “Neighborhood Group Organizes to ask Seattle Public Schools to Reopen T.T. Minor” Sept. 27, 2013. The Seattle School board will decide this month on school-assignment boundaries that will have a profound impact on our neighborhood. The short-term request of the group is to maintains the current boundaries of Stevens Elementary in order to provide stability to the families of the Squire Park neighborhood. The long-term goal is to reopen T.T. Minor as a neighborhood elementary school as soon as reasonably possible. A strong neighborhood voice is needed. Come to Saturday’s meeting to learn how you can help.”
