High school enrollment has declined and district-wide enrollment is almost the same as last year. I saw this coming, and I questioned the need for a $56 million bond earlier this year. Today, I am opposed to using the SMS building for the high school when there is no replacement middle school, because that would create significant middle school overcrowding and because it is not supported by high school enrollment needs. I have fully supported efforts for years to provide more interventions to help freshman students succeed, but, we do not need a separate building to do so. I believe we need to analyze enrollment again to determine when (and if) we will exceed capacity before making or continuing any major building use or bond decision. Our community and our kids deserve a better process.
