The Northshore School District (NSD) Board of Directors will seek funding through a 2014 bond measure to build a new high school in the north end of the district as a longer-term solution to enrollment growth and to reconfigure grade levels to a K-5 elementary, 6-8 middle school and 9-12 high school model which will provide greater educational opportunities for students. As a part of this planning, NSD is seeking applicants for the following Grade Reconfiguration Task Forces to begin the visioning and planning for grade reconfiguration: K-5 Elementary, 6-8 Middle School and 9-12 High School.
