Future Planning for the District

The South Whidbey School District has been declining in enrollment since 2000. Please review the enrollment report here. This has impacted the District budget and the use of facilities. The School Board will take input to assist in its decision making regarding facilities and program for the future. There have been workshops to start this discussion and there will be school board community meetings for input.

Thank you for your participation in the Community Conversations regarding the consolidation of school facilities effective September, 2017.

At the January 25, 2017 School Board Business Meeting, the School Board approved the closure of the Langley Middle School Facility.

Resolution #627 can be viewed here.

The Superintendent is meeting with the schools and the administration and will make a decision on the placement of grades 6,7, and 8 by February 1, 2017.

We will continue to provide updated information on this website. 

 

Following the School Board's decision to close the Langley Middle School Facility, the Superintendent has been directed to keep moving our district forward, including how to configure our K-12 program into the future.
