On the topic of this post, I think a lot of people have lost sight of just how much bigger Hoover is than some of the district’s other schools. Take a look at the capacity figures:
The district no longer has any plans to expand the capacity of any of those schools.
If the district is willing to close Hoover, there is every reason for people in those other attendance areas to be worried about the future of their schools.
I think the district should recognize that its existing schools are worth preserving, that it makes sense to use existing capacity before building expensive additions elsewhere, and that not all schools should be the kind of 600-kid mega-schools that the district is building farther out.
