The Prince William County School system operates 88 schools, for an estimated 94,000 students. Our recently opened 12th high school carried a $98 million price tag, and required 103 acres of land. Given the increasing population in the County and the scarce amount of available land in Eastern Prince William, the traditional planning for new schools doesn’t seem to fit the changing landscape.
Together we will focus on possible solutions for addressing classroom overcrowding in our neighborhoods. Your feedback can influence whether or not pending development applications get approved. Help County officials to answer:
- How can we address overcrowded classrooms in Eastern Prince William?
- What are possible solutions to the growing need to construct schools in the Route 1 corridor?
- How will the County pay for future schools? Can this be done in a way that saves taxpayer money?
