Platform - Schools


  • Chapel Hill has been growing 3 to 5% each year.  This fast growth fuels the need for new schools which necessitates frequent redistricting.  Kids lose their friends when they have to change schools.

  • Overcrowding.

  • Few possible sites for new schools.

  • Bus issues like breakdowns.

  • Teachers don't make enough money to be able to live in Chapel Hill.  They'd prefer to live in the same community that they work.  They don't want a long commute.

Proposed Solutions

  • Most of the school issues have to be addressed at the county and state levels.

  • Future school sites need to be identified and obtained.
