Information from Community Meetings
Enrollment Trends and Projections
Provides the current district numbers as of September 30, 2011 and the enrollment history from previous years.These enrollment numbers do not include students placed out of district, which count for state subsidy, but would not be involved in a discussion about district space.
Each year, the district hires a consultant who estimates our future enrollment.It appears that the estimate is for a short-term dip with an increase over the five year period.In summary, it looks like we will remain stable, as we have been for the past few years.This could, however, be influenced by changes in Naval personnel.
District Board Policy Capabilities vs. Enrollment
This document highlights the functional building capacity versus current enrollment.An 85% capacity utilization was used.This 15% buffer is on the minimum side and accounts for the uneven distribution of students and program needs.
These basic floor plans are provided to assist the community in visualizing the buildings.
These documents provide information on how different rooms may be used given a certain number of teams.
School Feeders & Student Movement
Details which elementary schools are currently scheduled to feed each middle school.
This table illustrates student movement since 2003.
The first page looks at the WSMS and CMS option. The revised look has the two schools with fairly equal enrollment. This would require six teams in each. The second version has CMS with seven teams and West Side with five. The two boundary maps are listed on the next two pages. The main difference is that all of the military area is included going to CMS under version two.
The next set of pages looks at the scenario in which FMS remains open. The maps follow. FMS would have seven teams in each of the runs.
Each of the runs provide an idea of what elementary schools would feed the middle schools. It would have been too costly and vague to do an actual redistricting for each scenario.
Current Racial Balance by School
This report shows the current distribution of racial balancing among our schools.The state measures racial balance by comparing the district average to that grade level and comparing it to the level of a particular school.We are supposed to be below 15%, but being below 25% avoids required actions.
Costs and Other Considerations
This document details the costs associated with staffing.
Provides line item costs and savings associated with closing one building.
Status quo estimates for school upgrades.
Per Pupil Costs
A new per student analysis was done by the GPS Business Manager.It shows a $1,000 difference between MS and HS students.This is down from the $2,000 back in 2009.Unfortunately the difference between MS and ES has increased from $2,600 to $3,000.
