Delay Widespread HCPSS High School Redistricting Until 2022
This petition had 139 supporters
We support the early construction of the new Howard County high school, HS13, slated to be opened by the year 2022, which will relieve the overcrowding in the eastern part of the county. The opening of a 1,600 seat new high school requires widespread redistricting in order to fill those seats. It logically follows that widespread redistricting should be delayed until 2022 in order to coincide with the opening of the new school. If this process is not delayed, we will have county wide redistricting occurring twice in four years. This is a huge disruption to our children's education and our communities. We ask that HCPSS and the Board of Education employ other ways to relieve the most crowded high schools during the next four years, including the use of relocatable classrooms, changes in location of regional programs (e.g. JROTC) and the creation of new, innovative programs which could be housed in under capacity schools. There are many creative ways to provide relief for these select high schools and their students while not disrupting the community at large. We ask for a delay in county redistricting until 2022 and a small scale, sensible approach to relieving the current overcrowding in select high schools in the east.
