The below notes are my personal notes and are not intended to be all-inclusive or official minutes for the Board of Education meetings and are provided as a request from my supporters and the general public in a personal effort to be more transparent. Although I have diligently tried to make these notes as unbiased and accurate as possible, I am only human and do make mistakes.

Opening of St. Charles High School - See report for additional development figures
According to officials from the developers of St. Charles:

--Sheffield is built out and includes about 1,300 housing units (apartments, townhomes, and single family.)
--Gleneagles North and South will have about 1,700 housing units.
--Fieldside will include just under 500 housing units.

Gleneagles North is largely complete. The first unit in Fieldside settled this month. St. Charles is still finishing lot development in Gleneagles South, but expect the first homeowner early next year.

This illustrates St. Charles' immediate plans around St. Charles High School. Of course, there are future neighborhoods that are still in planning and are not depicted on the map. After these units, the development agreement calls for approximately 10,000 more housing units, in the area between St. Charles High School and Radio Station Road/La Plata High School. At 300 units a year, those units would be built over 33 years.

The following is the link to the four options for opening St. Charles High School:

  • Wade - requests Richmonds opinion
  • Richmond - doesn't recommend moving seniors
Motion to accept Option 2 for opening the St. Charles High School with grades 9,10,& 11;
Second by Bowie
Yes = Abell, Bowie, Cook, Lukas, Pedersen, Wade, Wise

  • Bowie - Costs involved
  • Balides/Richmond - $18M to run a new high seniors would be less; based on our decision tonight they will produce a more detailed number.

  • Adjournment
