Boundary Changes Catharine Blaine/Lawton Discussion

Posted on October 29th, 2018 by Sara

Magnolia Elementary is scheduled to open in fall 2019 to provide more elementary school capacity in the Magnolia area. The construction team reports that the project is on schedule.
Opening Magnolia Elementary will provide relief from over-crowding at Catharine Blaine K-8 and Lawton Elementary School. It will also address projected growth in the future. In addition, it will provide more middle school seats at Catharine Blaine.
During September, principals have been meeting with Magnolia Elementary School Principal, Katie Cryan Leary, the district’s Enrollment Planning team, and parent representatives to examine additional boundary scenarios for Magnolia Elementary. All are invited to join:
Catharine Blaine K-8 (Cafeteria)
2550 34th Ave W, Seattle, WA 98199
No decisions have been made about the Magnolia Elementary attendance area. The presumption remains that the eastern boundary will be 15th Ave. NW.
No decisions have been made about program placement, grandfathering or transportation. It is anticipated that the Seattle School Board will make these decisions and boundary decisions in January 2019.
