I somehow was out of the loop with the sheer number of trailers that are going to be needed. FORTY-NINE?!?!?!

It will be interesting to see the response by the BOE. They have the money now, but they constantly cited safety and educational concerns as their #1 cons against MCRs and not funding. And with this feud getting this ugly, they don't want to look like the BOCC had to bail them out. But voting for redistricting when money is no longer an obstacle to an alternative could be very bad come reelection time.

Does anyone have a breakdown of where those 49 trailers would go?

is it a safe guess that Kensington, MRMS and PRMS would need a few?

Sure, but I'm curious as to the exact breakdown and this is on top of all the trailers these schools already have. Would Cuthbertson be getting some too?

I'm still not seeing how 49 trailers would address core capacity issues at 3 schools. Letters were sent out regarding safety concerns. Schools were capped. The BOE won't retract this. So with all of the expected growth I just don't see how this is such exciting news.

I don't think that's a "safe" guess at all.

Short-term this doesn't matter because I'm seeing posts all over Facebook and Twitter from parents excitedly proclaiming that redistricting is officially dead now. To take this euphoria away at this point from confused parents will be a dangerous game for the BOE. And of course that's exactly what the BOCC is counting on.

I would guess that Kensington, MRMS and PRMS WOULDNT get them, as they are already capped?

To follow the 'capping' logic already in place, I would THINK trailers could only be added until the school was at cap level.

If you look at the BEFORE REASSIGNMENT forecasts, you can kind of predict where they would go- or dont go.

Of course , who knows what the logic really is.

I'm also seeing posts from parents asking why adding trailers to the overcrowded new schools takes priority over fixing the old schools. And they are right. (In my opinion).
