More schools above the canal is an unlikely event as long as the district boundaries remain the same and Middletown population keeps on growing ...thereby pulling the center of gravity for the student population further south of the canal

There is growth above the canal too. I know that they won't build another school above the canal though, just hoping.

Excuse me for a dumb idea. Why not realign districts ? One side of the canal or the other.

I regret leaving DE , but family circumstances made the move necessary. Someday soon I will get back to my beloved Kent county.

The screams from Brennan Estates would be deafening if you told them they would be leaving Appo and going to Christiana, as would the cheers from Port Penn that they would be leaving Colonial to join Appo. LOL

I don't understand why Appo goes above the canal on the west side of the state or why Colonial dips below the canal on the east side. Miles to the original High Schools would be my only guess. Beside, what is the drive to Waters from Brennan Estates, a 10 min drive?

It is only a 10 min drive to Waters and Clecc. It is not that big of a deal. I would be so upset if they ever realign districts. I love our school district.

If someone would like to start another thread about school districts, that would be great, but the OP on this one is about the above. ^^^
