All for E4
Redistricting Option D4 was presented for review after the School Board meeting on 02/14/2020. This new option singles out our neighborhoods. It also effects students in the Springfield Corridor (Woodberry, Lexington, Green Springs, Old Springfield, Milbrooke, The Village at Innsbrook, The Meadows & The Woods at Innsbrook). The kids in this area would not be joining their classmates from Holman Middle School at Glen Allen High School (or Deep Run), but instead be sent to Tucker High School (off of Parham Rd.). Under Option D4, 17% of kids from Holman would be sent to Tucker, decreased from the current rate of 23%. From appearances, our neighborhoods have been carved out of Glen Allen and placed into Tucker in an effort to appease other, more vocal area of the County. OUR KIDS MATTER TOO!
Option D4 breaks the feeder pattern and takes away a linear path for our children.
Research shows that transitioning to high school with fewer of one's middle school peers weakens the link between 8th grade and 9th grade performance.
Higher achieving students performed better when they attended the same high school as most of their middle school classmates.
D4 fails to achieve the goals of reducing capacity at schools. Godwin High School will be at 99% under this option, thereby increasing the chances of rezoning again in the near future.
