Discussion

The Student Accommodation Plan (SAP) is an annual report detailing the existing and projected student enrollment along with an analysis of school capacities. Facilities Planning staff, in partnership with the Assistant Superintendents of Leading and Learning; school principals, and the Finance Department analyze this data and prepare the Student Accommodation Plan to ensure that adequate and appropriate facilities are available to accommodate the students and programs planned for the following school year. Additionally, the information contained in this plan aids staff in developing strategies for future school capacity needs.

For the 2022-2023 school year, four attendance boundary changes were approved at the January 18, 2022 School Board meeting. One attendance boundary change will be implemented for the 2022-23 school year and three attendance boundary changes will be implemented for the 2023-24 school year. The two-year boundary change implementation is a new strategy that waives the Educational Location Option (ELO) fee for affected families that enroll in their SY 2023-2024 zoned school in SY 2022-2023 and also provides more time for families to prepare for the boundary change.

The number of relocatable classroom units will decrease from 257 during the 2021-2022 school year to 245 for the 2022-2023 school year. Ten(10) relocatable classrooms at Quest Elementary and four (4) at McAuliffe Elementary will be converted to surplus units and two relocatable surplus units will be converted from non-classroom use to classroom use, one each at Cambridge Elementary and Saturn Elementary. No other changes are proposed to relocatable classroom units for the 2022-23 school year.

Other capacity changes noted in the SAP include:

  • Cafetorium at Mims Elementary
  • Classroom building addition at Viera High School
  • Classroom addition at South Lake Elementary
  • New middle school adjacent to Viera High School
  • New Transportation/Maintenance facility to replace Mid-South Transportation/Maintenance and Satellite Bus facilities

Section 9 of the 2022-2023 SAP includes demographics and other related data and analysis.
