Sandy Evans reporting on overcrowding at Annandale High School

Post date: May 18, 2011 12:05:51 PM

Dear Friends,

The four options developed by staff for consideration as ways to deal with the overcrowding at Annandale High School and to create boundaries at the new elementary school at the Lacey Center site have been posted. Here is the link:

When you review them, please keep in mind that we do not have to pick one of these scenarios in its entirety. The final staff recommendation to the School Board may very well be a combination of options from different scenarios or even involving something new that comes out of community dialogues.

Please plan to come to community dialogues to give your views. This is a very important part of the process and will be taken into account when staff goes back to make a final recommendation for Annandale HS and "Lacey."

The dialogues will be 7-9 pm on Mon. May 16 (AHS and Edison HS) and Mon. May 23 at Falls Church HS and Lake Braddock Secondary School. A dialogue for non-English-speakers will be held 7-9 June 6 at Annandale Terrace ES.

I am also scheduling special meetings at Bren Mar Park ES, tentatively set for Sat. May 21 9-10:30 am and Mon. June 13 at 7 pm.

PTA presidents and civic association presidents, I would appreciate it if you would get these out to your communities.

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you on finding the best approach for these schools.

Sandy Evans
