Keep Worthington Intact! Don't separate polygons 2093-3093-4093 from 93-1093-309-1309.

The 2017 Feasibility Study and proposed area attendance adjustment carves up the contiguous community of Worthington, separating polygons 2093, 3093, and 4093 from our contiguous Worthington neighborhood (93, 1093, 2093, 3093, 4093, 309, and 1309). This fracture occurs across our neighborhood's main thoroughfare, Roundhill Road.

Carving up the contiguous Worthington neighborhood (1) destabilizes our community, (2) creates small feeds, and (3) predisposes these families for more frequent future reassignments, and as a result, the current plan fails to meet HCPSS Policy 6010 on School Attendance Area, under Standards B for Community Stability.

We rely on our neighbors, our community, for support. Strong communities promote stability, improve our schools, and strengthen our county. Fixing overcrowding by using our children and fracturing our contiguous neighborhood contradicts HCPSS’ guiding principles and commitment to its students and communities.
