In response to strong enrollment growth in West Seattle, Seattle Public Schools will be opening a new elementary program for fall 2012: K-5 STEM at Boren.
The new STEM program will be housed in the Louisa Boren Building (5950 Delridge Way SW). It will be a K-5 option program and will open with all six grades in September 2012.
Family Information & Input Night: There will be a K-5 STEM at Boren information meeting on Wednesday, February 15 from 7:00-8:30 PM at Schmitz Park Elementary (5000 SW Spokane Street). Interested families are invited to learn about STEM and help identify program priorities as this new educational option is developed.
Because STEM at Boren will be an option program, it will be open to any student in Seattle who will be entering grades K through 5 in September 2012. Bus transportation will be provided for students who live within West Seattle. Families who wish to apply to K-5 STEM at Boren can do so during the district’s Open Enrollment process from February 27 through March 9, 2012. Families can also apply after Open Enrollment through September 30. School Choice forms will be available at www.seattleschools.org beginning February 27.
End of press release.
So they are starting up an entire K-5 STEM school from scratch to go on-line in September. That's a big job and a big sell. I think it will be difficult to attract parents to a program if it doesn't seem fleshed out and, isn't in its permanent home.
It's unlikely I can attend the information meeting so I hope some of you West Seattlites will attend and let us know how much detail they have for parents.
