To: Patty Reed, FCPS School Board Representative
From: Residents of Penderbrook and Fairfax Farms
As residents of the Penderbrook and Fairfax Farms
communities, we are concerned about the issue of overcrowding at our current
middle and high schools (Lanier Middle and Fairfax High). We are also concerned
about the negative impact being part of a “split feeder” elementary school has
on our children, from both an educational and social standpoint.
We ask that the school boundaries for the Penderbrook and Fairfax
Farms neighborhoods be shifted so that our children will remain with their
cohorts as they progress from elementary to middle and high school.
Specifically, we request that our neighborhoods’ middle school students be
reassigned to Franklin Middle School and our neighborhoods’ high school
students be reassigned to Oakton High School.
We believe that reassigning Penderbrook and Fairfax Farms fully
under the Oakton pyramid offers many benefits. First, this change could potentially
be implemented as an administrative boundary change based on the size of our
communities and the number of children who live here. Second, if identified as
an administrative boundary change, this reassignment would provide more
immediate relief to the Lanier/Fairfax overcrowding situation than other
changes implemented as part of a larger boundary study. Third, and most
importantly, it would allow our children to remain with the friends they have
bonded with over the years.
