Tacoma Public Schools now has opened up seats to elementary school parent volunteers willing to serve on a committee that will help redraw middle school boundaries to accommodate the future reopening of a new Hunt Middle School. Not enough middle school parents volunteered to fill all the seats--two for each middle school.
The committee still needs parents to represent: Baker, Giaudrone, Jason Lee, Wainwright and Meeker middle schools.
The School Board has approved a boundary review and adjustment process, which will begin in September, and rebalance enrollment among middle schools across the community.
The district sought two parent volunteers from each middle school to serve on a committee with principals and district staff members. Beginning in September, the committee will analyze enrollments and boundary lines and recommend boundary line adjustments to the superintendent and school board by early January.
Before the committee starts its work, an internal technical team will examine enrollment data and trends throughout the entire district and create a "springboard" boundary line adjustment proposal to give the committee a starting point for its discussions, analysis and deliberations.
Any parents who want to nominate themselves for service on the committee can call the Public Information Office at 253-571-1015 to provide their name, middle school and contact information before the Sept. 2 application deadline.
The committee will meet approximately 13 times between September and early January.
The district closed Hunt Middle School in 2010 due to poor academic performance and low enrollment and shifted the students to higher performing middle schools as part of a federal grant program to improve student achievement. In 2013, Tacoma voters approved a bond issue that included construction funding to build a new Hunt Middle School on the same site, 6501 S. 10th St. Preliminary demographic projections indicate the area on the western edge of Tacoma can accommodate a small middle school of approximately 450 students.
Tacoma Public Schools is the only district designated an Innovation Zone by Washington State. A leader in implementing innovative schools and programs to meet the diverse needs of every student, every day, TPS serves approximately 30,000 students from preschool to grade 12 and at nearly 5000 employees is one of the largest employers in Tacoma.
