    The obvious solution lies in adding space to FES. If all of the neighborhoods that were redistricted out of FES last time…were put back…then FES enrollment numbers would be beyond capacity…wouldn’t they? Our Administration keeps publishing that all of our smaller elementary schools have a capacity of 550 students. Frankly, I’m not so sure about that! Many school districts use modular classrooms while they determine the next best course of action. Recently, Bethel Park used modular classrooms at 3 of their elementary schools. Moving all these children is not the best solution in my opinion.
