School Officials to Talk Overcrowding, Moving Students at Monday Meeting

Last meeting in Fairfax County School Board's listening tour on overcrowding.

School officials plan to meet Monday with parents and teachers at Woodson High School to discuss moving Fairfax County students out of Fairfax City schools.

This is part of a two-pronged approach to address overcrowding in three of four Fairfax City schools. The Fairfax County School Board voted to move ahead with a scope study, to identify which schools may be impacted in the attempt to alleviate overcrowding, and a boundary study, to determine how many students will be moved to different schools at a meeting in September.

The boundary study will consider moving some county students assigned to FHS and Lanier to schools outside the city limits, like Woodson, Robinson and Oakton high schools. Centreville, Chantilly and Falls Church may provide additional options.

Monday's meeting ends a listening tour at several schools. 

Meeting details: 7 p.m. at Woodson High Auditorium.

Two corrections: 1. The meeting tonight begins at 7pm not 7:30. 2. There is one more meeting at Fairax High School on Nov. 26 from 7pm - 8:30pm. Due to the hurricane, this is a rescheduled meeting.

Thanks Toby. We have made the corrections.
