Just a friendly reminder that Seattle Public Schools is hosting a public meeting on the district’s new school Transportation Plan, which if approved will go into effect for the 2011-2012 school year, tomorrow, Thursday, February 3 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at Hamilton International School, located at 1610 N 41 St.
The proposed Transportation Plan changes would save the district an estimated $4 million by creating new transportation zones for bus routes for attendance area elementary and K-8 schools. Get details on the new plan here.
The school board is scheduled to vote on the proposed plan at its February 16 meeting, where there will be opportunities for public comment. More information about signing up for public testimony is available here (.pdf) and on the school board website.
If you can’t make Thursday’s meeting, don’t worry. There will be a third meeting regarding the proposed plan next week from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, February 8, at Chief Sealth International High School, 2600 SW Thistle.
