WALTER JOHNSON SCHOOL OVERCROWDING
UPCOMING FORUMS- Please show your support!
A huge area of concern for families within our Walter Johnson school cluster is the increase in residential development in the area and its future impact on our schools-- this includes Rock Spring, Grosvenor Heights, Toll Brothers WMAL radio tower site, Pike and Rose, and White Flint, in addition to the redevelopment trend of older homes in our area... Take for example Ashburton elementary school which has grown from 650 students in 2007 to over 900 this year representing a 57% increase. The schools are bursting at the seams, with portables being added to handle the volume, and school additions in the works for many of the schools including a possible addition at Walter Johnson to bring its capacity closer to 3200.
The Walter Johnson Cluster Roundtable Discussion Group will be considering facility options to address near-term and long-term enrollment increases in the Walter Johnson Cluster. NBMS, along with other schools in our cluster, has representatives on the Roundtable. Information on the Roundtable, including background materials and a schedule of meetings, is available here at http://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/departments/planning/roundtable.aspx. Please come and show your support for these upcoming meetings both at the above link, as well as below. All meetings are open to the public, and there will be time at the end of each meeting for questions from the public.
NBMS has also set up meetings to share approaches and gather feedback from the NBMS community.
