Nearly 200 parents met at Ballard High School on Wednesday night at a community feedback meeting organized by the school district to discuss the new school boundary maps.

The district said it’s planning on making an adjustment to the maps, which it will release on November 3rd. “I know that a lot of people in this room are not happy, but all I can tell you is that’s where the data lead us to,” said Tracy Libros, who heads up enrollment for Seattle Public Schools. “When you put all the numbers together of where the students live and where the buildings are located, that is where the first proposed boundaries, which do need adjustment, landed.” My Ballard was there and has full coverage here.
