Keep in mind we are renovatin buildings with no money left for any other building left in the future. If wahs or any youngsville school needs renovated in the future the cost will be more than we can afford without raising taxes through a referendum. Do you think people will vote for a referendum tax increase?

The WCSD website lists projected enrollment (w/ 6th grade) at EHMS for 2013-14 at 560 students. The projected enrollment for 2017-18? 464 students. That's a decrease of nearly 100 students in less than five years. The same rate of decline is seen for the elementary schools in Russell and Sugar Grove. Projected enrollment for the entire NA is 747 students in 2017-18, down over 200 students in less than five years.

At that rate, how many students will be in that building by 2020? (Keep in mind that is ALL the students in the NA.) Is it really worth a $26.4 million investment to have a school that won't be anywhere near capacity in ten or fifteen years?

The allowable capacity by law? Oh, you mean until the administration decides they want to do something else and the building and grounds secretary emails the architect to see if they can increase the capacity using the square footage so they can shove more kids in.
