Committee Gathers Data on Crofton Schools
The group charged with coming up with redistricting proposals collected pages of information on population and construction.
The redistricting committee for Crofton Schools held its second meeting Tuesday night, and received a packet of requested data on everything from student populations to planned construction.
The 16-member group is examining solutions to the overcrowding at Nantucket Elementary School, and hopes to present a redistricting solution within the next few weeks.
But first, members wanted to do some research.
The data packet provided by Anne Arundel County Public Schools includes 21 pages of maps, charts and figures.
The most interesting pieces of information are the maps of the developments that feed into each elementary school, with student population figures broken down by grade. (For instance, there are 18 fifth-graders from Crofton Farms that go to school at Nantucket.)
This is useful data, because it will help the committee decide where to re-draw the feeder boundaries.
Here's a partial breakdown for where the kids at Nantucket are coming from, based on the information provided by AACPS:
- Crofton Farms - 92 students
- Crofton Valley - 46 students
- Walden Drive Area - 59 students
- Chelmsford Drive/"East Walden" - 110 students
Note that this does not represent the full Nantucket student population. The committee has requested more information.
We've uploaded the full data packet here.
The committee's next meeting is Oct. 9 at 7 p.m. at Crofton Meadows Elementary School.
