The Enrollment and Capacity Management Advisory Committee is a critical element of the planning and communication framework created by the Enrollment and Capacity Management Task Force in February 2016. 

The purpose of the Enrollment and Capacity Management Advisory Committee is to analyze information affecting enrollment, capacity, and building use, and to generate observations and recommendations to be communicated to district administration. Read the 2018-2019 Summary of Progress report.

Observations and recommendations will:

  • Be concise and informed by data
  • Align with district racial equity work
  • Be sustainable
  • Identify and examine the implications for all students
  • Identify potential costs and consider funding strategies
  • Be made with as much advance notice as possible when change is recommended

Attendance at meetings is by member appointment only

Attendance at ECMAC meetings (including all sub-committee meetings) is by member appointment only. 

There are other ways community members can be informed about the group’s work and provide feedback on eventual recommendations:

  • All meeting materials are posted below.
  • All school board work sessions that have ECMAC items on the agenda are video recorded and can be found below.
  • Updates on the group’s work are regularly included in the district’s parent e-newsletter, 279Connect, and the districtwide postcard mailing (Oct, Feb, May).
  • Multiple avenues for feedback will be offered when ECMAC is ready to propose potential solutions to over-capacity conditions.
