FORCED BUSING OF LOW INCOME STUDENTS!
MORE VACANT BUILDINGS IN A LOW INCOME NEIGHBORHOOD!
LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
15,797 residents live within 1 mile of current location*
Those residents have an average income of $27,075*
807 residents live within 1 mile of the proposed location*

THAT’S 5% OF THE POPULATION WITH 66% MORE INCOME! It will mean forced busing, as many students in the current school district walk to school now.
NEW HIGH SCHOOL WOULD ONLY SERVE 800 STUDENTS**
Current enrollment at Southeast High School over 1,650**
Where else would the students go where it wouldn’t crowd those schools?
