Reorganizing Menlo Park schools

The Menlo Park City School District is seriously considering reorganizing the elementary schools to include changes in grade configurations and attendance boundaries. What do you think about that?

I like the basic idea. I think it requires a very careful look into the impact of children East of El Camino. It seems there is projected a lot of changes between schools which is tough and it is still hard to determine who goes to Encinal or Laurel if they both go K-5. I think while this is a start -- we need to think about a long-term solution which may include even adding another school if the growth patterns project out as they stand now. I believe that careful planning now for a 15-20 year outlook would be wise since we are considering some pretty big changes now.
