Shoreline Public Schools closed to new non-residents for 2016-17 school year

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

Due to continued increased enrollment, space constraints and anticipated future growth, Shoreline Public Schools will continue to be closed to new non-resident students in grades K-6 for the 2016-17 school year.

Current students with non-resident boundary transfers who were enrolled prior to the 2015-16 school year will be allowed to continue to attend the Shoreline Public Schools unless admission is revoked for the reasons identified in the notice of acceptance.

Students who move out of the District during the school year will be allowed to complete the year unless admission is revoked for the reasons identified in the notice of acceptance.

The District will reevaluate enrollment capacity prior to the beginning of the 2016-17 school year. At that time, siblings of students with current non-resident boundary exceptions will be given priority if space becomes available.

The District will continue to honor all statutory and contractual obligations relating to non-resident boundary transfer applications for the children of District employees.

...and the City Council wants to allow more building and more people in here with their huge rezones????......the district can't support the population right now...what is to happen with the density increase and rezones??? I know the new high schools don't even have enough desks/tables for the current students!!! There aren't enough bus drivers now!!Shoreline will not be able to handle a huge influx of people!!! The rezones need to be stopped!!!!

Good thing the city is planning on adding thousands of new residents. Not only will Shoreline look like Seattle, but our schools will be just as crappy!

An why is the City Council contracting with a private vendor to develop a campaign to attract new residents? Squatch? It seems people can find Shoreline and move here without the City spending tax $ to advertise.

This blog is taken over by NIMBYs who come out of the woods to just comment on their Ignorant beliefs.

Shorelines tax base is shrinking. Who is going to pay for new schools? Great, do nothing because I don't want more people living in my neighborhood. Perhaps only if you spent your time on working a real job you might be able to move to your utopia land of Lynwood or mount lake terrace.

Shoreline schools are at capacity. Adding thousands of new students, while at the same time giving developers 10-12 years of tax breaks is only going to ruin the Shoreline school system. Density lovers don't seem to ever point out the fact that the densest cities have the worst schools.

The Shoreline City Council thinks Futurewise know best. If Future loves density so much, how come their entire board lives on Mercer and Bainbridge islands? I guess they don't want their own kids going to those pesky dense public schools.

If Shoreline's tax base is indeed shrinking it's due to 12 year tax breaks for developers of high-density apts and ill-conceived TIF fees that discourage any sort of small, independent businesses.
