Popular West Roxbury schools to expand?

BPS is looking at expanding elementary schools in the West Zone, especially West Roxbury, "where demand currently exceeds supply," according to this BPS press release.
"[Superintendant Carol] Johnson is investigating and costing out modular classrooms and considering other expansion strategies to create more seats in highly chosen elementary and K-8 schools. She also has been meeting regularly with a group of Roslindale families to ensure a strong, seamless educational experience throughout the elementary and middle school years, including possible feeder patterns and improvements to the Irving Middle School."
I wonder what their expected timeframe is.  More seats for next year?  Which schools?  I feel like "highly chosen" in West Roxbury is code for Lyndon and Kilmer, but maybe also Beethoven.
