District Planning Initiative Work in Full Swing

District Planning Initiative Work in Full Swing

All three of the Shoreline School District planning initiative committees have now held one or more meetings this school year. Use the links below to learn more about their work and see the progress of all three initiatives that focus on creating a clear vision for our school district to guide us in the near term and the future, which will help us maximize our investment in our students.

Our strategic plan will provide the long-term visioning work, the direction to achieve our mission, and the indicators to let us know if we’re on track. This clarity and the priorities that emerge from our strategic plan will help guide our budgeting process. And as part of the budgeting process, we will review school capacity and consider a school closure.

School Capacity Review and Closure Consideration

As Shoreline School District examines the most effective and efficient ways to deliver the best educational service we can provide to our community, we must examine many factors, including declining enrollment, school funding limitations, and the resources and supports required. We have convened a School Capacity Review and Closure Consideration (SCRCC) task force that will work toward making a recommendation in fall 2024 of the most viable elementary school for possible closure for the 2025-26 school year.

The School Capacity Review and Closure Consideration task force held their first meeting on Tuesday, February 6.

Envision Shoreline: Strategic Planning

A strategic plan is an important tool for school districts, especially given the current complex educational landscape, and locally as we work through our significant budget challenges in Shoreline Schools. We have launched Envision Shoreline because we need a smart plan to help our district face the future while keeping our mission and vision alive.

The Envision Shoreline coalition held their second meeting on Thursday, February 8.

Budget Advisory Team

The Budget Advisory Team (BAT) is a diverse group of parents/guardians, staff, students, and community members who represent a wide range of perspectives. The team reviews the district’s current and projected budget challenges and the factors that influence school funding and spending, and monitors the progress of our annual budget.

The 23-24 Budget Advisory Team has met twice, with a third meeting scheduled for February 12, at which the team will learn more about 2023-24 school district finances and projections for 2024-25.
