Pocopson 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.
