PPS Enrollment Balancing

PPs and a community-led advisory committee (DBRAC) are working on proposals to manage growth and support learning, such as moving boundaries, changing grade configurations, expanding existing schools and reopening schools that were closed.

Goal: Enough classrooms and students to offer a full academic program with reasonable class sizes at all grade levels without relying on temporary grants and parent fundraising. The full academic program includes enrichments and learning supports so that all students can excel.

There are currently two proposals, effecting Woodlawn in the following ways:

Scenario 1:

  • Woodlawn would become a PK-5 and feed to Ockley Green Middle School
  • A portion of the Woodlawn PK-8 boundary would shift to King PK-5 and Tubman Middle School
  • A portion of the Woodlawn PK-8 boundary that now has dual assignment to Roosevelt and Jefferson would change to Grant and Jefferson.

Scenario 2: 

  • Woodlawn PK-8 would become a PK-5 and feed to Ockley Green Middle School
  • A portion of the Woodlawn PK-8 boundary would shift to King PK-5

If you have questions or comments about the proposals, you can send the DBRAC team an email at ppsgrows@pps.net or respond to their survey (through December 1).

We had a parent meeting here at Woodlawn on 17 November. We asked parents to consider the following questions in their table groups:

  • What questions do you have?
  • How do you think this will impact our students?
  • What changes would you recommend?
The consolidated notes can be found here. They were also sent to the the DBRAC team.

Woodlawn PTA has also created a great resource on their website: http://woodlawnwildcats.org/
