The Fairfax County School Board has stated plans for countywide boundary changes that may affect the Dranesville district. Residents are concerned about:
- Keeping the community together.
- Take no child out of the Langley school pyramid.
- No splitting student siblings and friends apart.
- House values.
All communities are stronger together. We live, play, work, volunteer and support each other. The synergy created through one community funnelling to one public high school propels the performance of that high school and knits the community even closer. Students, graduates, parents, businesses, community organizations and leaders are all affected and care about this outcome.
We want our school board and administration to recognize that redistricting would pull apart our community, will significantly decrease property values of hard-working families who pushed the envelope to move into this community, and most importantly, leaves the underlying problems unsolved.
Please work with our community to come up with solutions that fundamentally address overcrowding schools elsewhere in the county without hurting our Great Falls community in the process.
