Survey on Capital Improvement/Development Plan

Arlington Public Schools (APS) is currently in the process of developing the 2014 Capital Improvement Plan to address enrollment growth in Arlington.  Recognizing that APS may not be able to build enough seats to meet projected enrollment, APS plans to consider “Capital Development” options to help add or better utilize capacity.  Such alternatives include increasing class size, increasing utilization of buildings, year-round schools, adjusting schedules, and virtual class offerings, among others.  The School Board is also considering whether they want to continue with the plan to build a new elementary school on the Kenmore/Carlin Springs site and how they will handle adding physical capacity at the middle and high school levels, whether by additions or a new non-comprehensive school (similar to HB Woodlawn).

Arlington PTAs have been asked to provide some preliminary input on these topics.  We would like to better understand the viewpoints of the Jamestown community in order to respond to this request.  Please click here to complete a brief survey on this topic.  Responses are due by Thursday, January 16.
