Fauquier County Proposed Resdistricting sign now

Fauquier County Residents,

Please sign this petition to show you oppose the current redistricting plan.

To: Fauquier County School Board

As residents, we greatly appreciate the efforts you have made representing us in the past. However, we are strongly opposed to the current redistricting proposal.
Your original goal was to ease the overcrowding at Greenville Elementary School. Your current proposal now affects 10 elementary schools. In changing boundary lines you are rezoning 555 students!
We urge you to reconsider your current plan and see if there are perhaps other options you may have overlooked. Here are some of our concerns voiced at the public hearing Monday, March 21, 2011.

Students are being rezoned from neighborhood schools to schools 5-10+ miles away
Some elementary school children will now be sharing a bus with middle school students
Some elementary school children will travel on buses up to 1 hour each way
Students will now be attending schools outside of their families represented district
Schools outside our immediate communities will make volunteering difficult
Extracurricular activities will be impossible with the extra travel time
Residents purchased property in anticipation of current school zoning
Residents property value will be affected by rezoning to schools outside of neighborhood
Increased spending on gas needed for additional travel time

Residents also offered alternatives:

Use of (existing) trailers for overcrowded schools
Alleviate overcrowding in Greenville by moving boundary line with Pearson (under capacity)
Donation for independent panel to review proposal
Attrition program where students could finish out their years at current school
While many of us were born in Fauquier County, just as many moved to this county to avoid these very issues that plague other more populated counties. Fauquier County is synonymous with small town feel; community oriented. At the very least, residents here believe their voices are heard and opinions are considered. At this time there is concern that the board has not heard or considered our fears and opinions. We do not want to hear the same stock answer, your children will be fine; the parents have the hardest time. We would appreciate the board taking the time to have a proper meeting. Not rushing through an additional meeting to make it home before the NCAA playoff game (overheard at last meeting).

We the undersigned residents, standing together and strongly united, oppose the current redistricting proposal.
