Reduce Haycock AAP Population by Creating Cluster 2 Lever IV Center
We respectfully request that you lower the Haycock student population by creating a Level IV center in Cluster 2 that will allow for the transfer of all incoming
Cluster 2 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade AAP students for the 2012/13 FCPS school year. We request that there be no grandfathering-in of the incoming 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade Cluster 2 students. This request is consistent with statements made by Cluster 1 Superintendent, Marty Smith, to reduce our student population starting in the 2012/13 school year.
As you know, Haycock is severely overcrowded. The removal of the incoming 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade Cluster 2 students will only reduce our population by an estimated  kids. While this will give us some much need relief, it is simply not enough.
In addition, we respectfully request that FCPS consider additional AAP realignment solutions that would result in the lowering the AAP population, and therefore lowering the overall Haycock population immediately. These solutions include opening additionally Level IV centers within Cluster I, implementing Level IV services at all Cluster 1 elementary schools, and incentivising families of Level IV children to keep their children in their community schools.
