For those curious about how the city decides how many students to squeeze into each school building, the city has handily just updated its guide to school capacities, called the Blue Book. This year’s guide includes some changes from past Blue Books. From the guide:
1. Capacity for rooms that are shared by multiple schools is distributed among the organizations by the usage percentage provided by principals.
2. Incorporates enhancement from the Annual Facilities Survey such as the identification of CTT classes which have a maximum capacity of 25.
3. Upon request by City Council, a new City Council Edition which organizes the information by City Council District is being released.
