Is it me, or is this district always in reaction mode? The children of our military should be given first pick at any school, to include Huff, ahead even of neighborhood families. And these kids come with extra federal dollars per head to be spent specifically on them, a fact that isn't even mentioned in this article!

I agree Steve!! What the heck?? Property rights for Bubb-yeah and Huff too, right... but the rest of us, well we should just put up with being moved around this district aimlessly so that people who buy houses across from "these" schools can get in. I believe we did have word of the military families coming back, and Slater would have welcomed these families with open arms. Hopefully the district will have some consideration of them and all the families that will probably move back into the Summerhill apartments, when they have a chance to re-open Whisman in 2011. Our neighborhood will welcome the military families.

Perhaps they should be looking at re-opening Whisman. The bulk of the military kids used to go there when it was part of the Whisman district.
