Update on Arlington Public School's Efforts to Reduce Overcrowding

School officials addressed the issue Wednesday at Kenmore Middle School.

Arlington Public School officials told parents Wednesday that they hope to add 7,000 seats over the next 10 years to keep up with growing enrollment in Arlington schools, according to The Washington Post

Many of the Arlington Public Schools are already facing overcrowding issues, including Washington-Lee High School, which opened its new $110 million, state-of-the-art, LEED Certified building in 2009. 

APS officials have considered 60 options for either building new schools or adding on at 18 sites. Each of these plans rated according to how many seats it would add versus its impact on open space and other criteria, according to The Post. The ratings of these options will be posted online soon. 

From these ratings, officials will come up with four to six sets of changes by March. The public will be able to give their opinions on these plans before the school board votes on the final 10-year plan in May.
