WE SUPPORT Fairfax County Public School\'s proposed West County High School Boundary Study for the following reasons: 1. WE SUPPORT the responsible use of available resources: A. Redistricting seeks to reduce overcrowding at Westfield and Chantilly High Schools. i. Overcrowded schools apply great pressure to the limited resources of academic, non-academic and extracurricular programs by creating an unnecessary high demand for limited resources. The cost of this scenario is the limited opportunities for all students who wish to participate in these programs. ii. The remaining students, after redistricting, will have more opportunities to access available resources and programs at these schools. There will be less pressure for students to be extremely competitive in order to participate in programs and activities. B. Redistricting seeks to reduce under-enrollment at South Lakes. i. Since significant under-enrollment is an inefficient use of resources, adding students to South Lakes will actually create more opportunities because it will allow for a greater availability of elective courses and more opportunity for academic and extracurricular choices. C. Redistricting seeks to even out high school enrollments and will allow for a more equitable distribution of resources and programs. This will help make all the schools stronger and more desirable. i. Stronger schools make Fairfax County a more desirable location to live, work and will help build a more successful economic base in Fairfax County. D. Not addressing over-enrollment and under-enrollment issues in our schools is a waste of taxpayer
