Neighborhood group organizes to ask SPS to reopen TT Minor

8210197443_5c55c01fbdWith the private school that has made the district-owned building its home moving out and a Seattle Schools plan to create a home for the bilingual World School on its campus as background, area parents are making a push to reopen 18th at Union’s TT Minor as a neighborhood elementary school.

Details of the plan have been posted at our sister site, Central District News:

The group’s impetus for forming is a recent projection that Stevens Elementary School will surpass its current capacity for students in the next several years. As a result, Seattle Public Schools has proposed boundary changes that will reassign students near Stevens’ southern boundary to either Madrona K-8 or Lowell Elementary. The group would prefer the district reopen TT Minor.

The school district is fielding feedback on the proposed boundary changes at several upcoming meetings, including one Monday at 19th Ave’s Meany Campus from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. The neighborhood group’s parents plan to speak about their plan for TT Minor during the meeting.

  1. The district refuses to release the metrics in response to Public Disclusrue Requests, data on which these so called boundary adjustments are allegedly being made, and yet they expect the public to have meaningful input (or maybe not, by design). One of the justifications is capacity problems….well, open up TT Minor for that neighborhood, instead of jamming up families all over the city.
