middle schools have 6, 7, 8
high school has 9, 10, 11, 12

that is just one reason

Yes we know it's over but please referring back to the McKibben report? LOL- no doubt your ties to the BOE run strong to refer back to a reporting service that is flawed to say the least. Maybe the next time the BOE will ditch McKibben for the most accurate demographer in the business, ESRI. Esri Demographic Data Most Accurate in Blind Study

This is like trying to figure out why CMS and MRMS were so different.

Sorry, that was a dumb question. Forgot about 3 grades compared to 4. You can see how much this upsets me. My kids went to WCES when there 29 trailers and 200% capacity. Now my son is in 10th grade at WHS and wants to stay there if we can get him transportation. My daughter is in 8th grade at WMS and will be attending SVHS. I was really hoping that they both would be at WHS. The people that are not affected by this redistricting are really lucky. Please try to bear with us. Thank you.

Not sure why you have to bring my name into this? I stopped posting awhile ago because I figured there was not much I could do about any of this. I still go to the meetings just to stay informed . The only thing that upsets me is that it seems like everyone wants to blame my community. As if it's our fault. The only thing I can say is the layout of this community was planned in 2007. There fore they knew they would need a school if the economy stayed as it were. Do cuthbertson was built and opened in 2009. Now it seems everyone is surprised we are able to stay?? With all the research that everyone did nobody knew about this?? I think not. Everyone just cared about their own a$$ and just wanted a scapegoat and threw this community under the bus. Finally I do feel for EVERYONE that is affected regardless of my situation. It isn't fair to anybody. But you need to leave me out of it. thank you

Unfortunately, Millbridge is going to take more flak now because of that amendment. (There should have been more if someone didn't walk out.) It's definitely not fair to the residents. They didn't do anything except buy homes like the rest of us. The resentment is aimed at the developers but it never comes across that way. Lawson is the same way. Two big neighborhoods that stressed Kensington... resulting in the moves across Cuthbertson and New Town.

Gee, then it's pretty interesting that McKibben was one of the four most respected Demographers on the panel selected by ESRI to do the study where they tout their success rate...

"To conduct the study, Cropper GIS assembled a renowned team of demographers and geographers who specialize in population and housing forecasting. The team consisted of Jerome N. McKibben, PhD, McKibben Demographic Research; David A. Swanson, PhD, University of California, Riverside; Jeff Tayman, PhD, University of California, San Diego; and Matthew Cropper, GISP, Cropper GIS.
Drs. McKibben, Swanson, and Tayman are noted authorities on small-area forecasts and measures of forecast accuracy and have written and presented papers extensively on these subjects. Cropper has a broad background in geographic information systems (GIS) and demographic analysis. The researchers did not know the identity of the vendors or the methodologies the vendors used to update their data."


Why people kept referring to other firms and meaningless reports as part of this process is beyond me. It's like those that had that late fascination with bus mileage and accident reports or others that got into mold reports and EPA regulations. What was that about? Do you think that kind of stuff would ever come into the decision making process? Opposition to this lost focus and got distracted by squirrels and started chasing them.

Tag, your it.

I too have a dumb question, is what they approved last night based on the cluster maps released in January with the only changes being Millbridge and grandfathering? I haven't seen any new maps since yesterday......

Millbridge shouldn't take any crap. It looks like they were one of a few groups that didn't chase squirrels. They kept quiet, organized, made thoughtful presentations at the public hearing, and most importantly found a BOE rep that would propose their amendment.

I thought Valhalla Farms also had a similar argument and approach. Maybe they didn't specifically propose an amendment or they picked a rep that walked out.

Some of us saw this coming, the amendment process, not necessarily the motion shift but that also was foreshadowed.

It would be interesting to know if any other subdivisions other than Millbridge approached their own BoE rep or another friendly rep with a well thought out argument and amendment.

Not dumb at all. Yes, they used the January maps. Part of Millbridge was originally in the plans to stay, and the other part off Waxhaw-Marvin Road was to Parkwood. If they get the connector road built in the neighborhood, it will all go to Cuthbertson.
