The controversial proposal to redraw the Ballard High School boundary will be introduced to the school board tonight. Just over a dozen Seattle residents are slated to speak before the board — several about Ballard High specifically.

The meeting begins at 4:15 this afternoon (Wednesday) at 2445 3rd Avenue S. Public testimony is scheduled for 5:30, and the board is expected to discuss the issue sometime after 6:30. The meeting is scheduled to adjourn at 8:30 p.m.
