Posted today, April 23, 2014, on the PWCs web site is the recommended boundary plan for the 12th high school. It’s dated May 7, 2014 and the 2nd paragraph in the report reads as follows:
“Public input was gained by way of two community meetings. Not only did these meetings foster an environment where the public was able to highlight the perceived merits and shortcomings of the administration’s recommended boundary plan, but they also helped to bring awareness to potential implications of the plan that were beyond the ability of PWCS staff to foresee. The Office of Facilities Services held community meetings on Wednesday April 30, 2014 at Brentsville High School and on Thursday May 1, 2014 at Hylton High School”
Seems PWCS is in a time warp!
Seriously, however…… The changes proposed here are major. They affect practically all of the high schools in our county. If you want a better example of why the 12th high school should have been flipped with the 13th, look no further than the projected enrollment totals at the 12th high school – it never goes about 92%. Patriot remains at over 130% and Battlefield is between 120% and 130%.
Shouldn’t staff have waited until AFTER the community meetings to finalize their recommendations? Do our opinions and concerns matter at all?
UPDATE: Here’s the link to the report which PWCS has now stamped with DRAFT.
