Correct error in school assignment for CHESHUNT from David Cox Elementary to Croft Elem.

This petition had 135 supporters


The Cheshunt community is located on the north side of David Cox road between the Brownes Ferry and Davis Lake residential neighborhoods. With regard to school assignment and utilizing Google maps you can clearly see how Cheshunt was cut out and assigned to David Cox Elementary, Brownes Ferry and Davis Lake however, were assigned to the new school, Croft Elementary. I was told this was done because of growth and the school being at capacity prior to the opening of Croft. However, at this time Croft is only 85% utilized and can easily accommodate our children. During the school day buses for Croft travel through our neighborhood to pick up and drop of students.  This creates additional traffic and safety concerns.  In the last grading period, David Cox was given a "D" by the North Carolina School Report Cards system for not meeting its goals. EOG performance at David Cox is also 17 points below Croft in reading, 15 points below in math and 25 points below in science.  I am aware of staffing changes and programs implemented to help David Cox Elementary however, it may take several years to achieve the level of performance it once held. Even if you do not have children attending school I ask for you to consider supporting this request. Schools affect all of our home values and at this time on Zillow David Cox has been given a three out of ten. While Zillow may not be the authority on this subject, you can agree that many realtors and potential home buyers use it to make decisions.  Please help me in correcting this boundary error by signing this petition request. Now is the time to take action. CMS is currently assigning new boundaries which will be designated in the spring and in place for the 2017-18 school year and several years thereafter. The sound of Croft children playing at recess sings through our neighborhood everyday, wouldn't it be great if our kids went there as well like they should have to begin with? Thank you for your support.
