Wasson closure will affect all of D11
Those of you who live in School District Eleven and thought the Closure of Wasson only affected “those Wasson” students are in for a very rude awakening. The entire high school boundary has been re-drawn and guess what? You thought your 8th grader was going to Palmer, well guess again. They may be going to Coronado now. The same goes for EVERY high school in district eleven. Going to Doherty? Guess again, you may be going to Mitchell or Coronado now. The turmoil that the School District Eleven School Board has unleashed upon the district has only just begun. Big brother goes to Palmer and little brother wants to follow? Too bad. Little brother, now has to go to a different high school because of the school board actions. Choicing between schools will be VERY DIFFICULT because the board just transferred 950 students across the 4 remaining high schools. Palmer and Doherty, already at or near full capacity, will be especially hard hit. If you don’t live in Palmer or Doherty new boundry areas, the chances are you choicing there will be virtually zero. Extreme turmoil is only starting for District Eleven. If you live along the boundry of Distict Eleven and have the capacity to go to an out of district high school, go for it! Out of district means lots of room and class sizes under 40 students per room.
