Response to Public Comment

Is Peter Burnett over capacity?

Peter Burnett is not over capacity as a school. There is room for additional students at every grade level except 6th grade, which is full. Our 6th grade teachers have voluntarily kept an additional student rather than ConCap the student to another school. The school also has 4/5 GATE and 6th grade GATE classes that have room for students.

What is going on with enrollment numbers?

Answer pending.

What are the true cost of the renovations for the district?

The total cost of the renovations of the receiving schools was $4,158,819 and was covered with facility bond funding. Most of these projects were already to be completed and paid for through bond funding. However, the timeline was accelerated to accommodate additional students. UPDATED 10/18/13

What is the transportation for receiving schools costing the district?

The cost of transportation for students was included in the net savings projections presented prior to the Board’s decision on school closures. No additional costs were necessary. Nine additional routes were added for a total cost of $468,000. UPDATED 10/18/13
