Redistricting Study Announced

pocopson elemPocopson Elementary’s enrollment rose to 652 students this year, putting it just about at full capacity.  District Administration recommends that we study the capacity issue over the next 6 months, with redistricting being a potential outcome.  See the presentation delivered to the Board on September 8:   Redistricting Presentation Sept 8 2014.

Among the questions to be answered is whether the uptick in enrollment is likely to be temporary or permanent, and if Pocopson is indeed projected to be over-capacity, then what should be done.

As a parent of Pocopson students, I am personally very interested in this issue.     I will provide updates on my blog at significant points, and will also be soliciting comments from parents and taxpayers along the way.

I encourage community members to email me with questions or concerns.  Or subscribe to my blog to keep up to date.
