Dear Board members:
My name is FIRST NAME LAST NAME, and I am a PARENT/STUDENT residing in POLYGON NUMBER.
I strongly support Howard County Board of Education (BOE) member Dr. Chao Wu’s proposed area adjustment plan for the Howard County Public School System (HCPSS).
I urge the BOE to move forward with his solution, which directly addresses capacity, cost, our community’s priorities, free and reduced meals (FARM) ratios, and future redistricting needs for HS13.
