Hi All

Does anyone know when they generally announce the changes to base school assignments and capped schools for the upcoming school year (2016-2017)?

In 2014, looked like there was some buzz about it as early as November, but so far, I haven't been able to find anything this year...

We love so many of the houses in the Holly Glen / Braxton Village area but the only thing stopping me right now is that Holly Grove Elementary is capped. When I spoke to the data manager at HGE, she said that if we moved right now, the kids would definitely be overflowed to Lincoln Heights.

TIA!

Since the link may expire in a few days, I thought it worthwhile to quote the relevant parts here:

At Wednesday’s facilities committee meeting, staff will recommend keeping existing enrollment caps on 10 schools: Enloe, Heritage and Panther Creek high schools; Mills Park Middle; and Cary, Hodge Road, Holly Grove, Hunter, Mills Park and Walnut Creek elementary schools. Staff recommends dropping the cap at Davis Drive Middle School.

But staff will also recommend placing new caps on Fuquay-Varina and Garner high schools; Apex Middle School; and Cedar Fork, Davis Drive, Fuquay-Varina and Wiley elementary schools. It would increase the number of schools that are capped from 11 this school year to 17 next year.

Enrollment caps have been used by the school system to deal with overcrowding instead of reassigning students. Caps place the burden on newcomers instead of existing students.

When a school hits its enrollment limit, new families who move in after the date the cap was enacted would not be guaranteed a seat at their assigned school. Instead, they’d be sent to another school that has space.

Many of the schools on the proposed cap list are already over their cap figure. For instance, Davis Drive Elementary’s cap limit is 1,000 students, but the school is already at 1,076 students. If the cap is approved, families who move into Davis Drive’s attendance area after January would be given the option of attending Carpenter, Morrisville or White Oak elementary schools.

It will be interesting to see which schools they do cap. Some of the schools mentioned will be unaffected by reassignments and new schools opening per the website. 2016-17 Enrollment Proposal / Proposed Base Changes
