Thank you to the FCPS staff and the Mason
District Community for coming out in force regarding the state of our schools. Thanks to your efforts on the petition, discussion is moving ahead regarding a school on the Willston site.

MDC QUESTIONS TO PANEL PARTICIPANTS:
1.What are the plans to deal with overcapacity schools – such as, Stuart H.S., Belvedere, Glen Forest, etc., in all grade levels.
2. When does the school board officially weigh in on deciding if there is a need for a new school and where it should be located? Who makes the final determination?
3. When new residential development proposals are made in areas where schools are overcapacity can developer proffers be raised from $11,300 per student or can the school board vote to not approve a new development proposal?
4. Can or is the Fairfax County School Board looking at revising the student yield formula to more accurately project the number of students expected in a district?
5. MDC has an online petition to Supervisor Gross and the Board of Supervisors with over 500 signatures in support of the School Board’s request for the former Willston school site to be used for a school. We have asked that the property be returned to the School Board. How can we make this happen?
6. Accreditation is a serious issue and the Stuart community is very concerned because Stuart is on “accredited with warning” status for the second year. What are the consequences if Stuart is denied accreditation?
