Due to the overcrowding in some Puyallup elementary schools, the Puyallup School District approved a three year plan which included moving Zeiger, Sunrise, and Shaw Road sixth graders to the near by Junior High Schools. Zeiger was the first to make the move, and the sixth graders at Zeiger were moved to Ballou Junior High in September. This fall Woodland sixth grade students were scheduled to Attend Aylen Junior High and the sixth graders at Sunrise and Shaw Road were to attend Ferrucci Junior High.

At a school board study session held Friday, January 22, Assistant Superintendent Casey Cox provided an enrollment update for the directors, presenting options for their consideration. One option postpones the move of sixth-graders until the fall of 2017.
