I would like to make sure that there is room in the budget to continue to ensure that APS remains a top quality school district. One of the biggest issues facing APS is lack of classroom space and I would hope that the county will work with the school board to identify places in which to build new schools to accommodate the ever growing population. Given the long term planning by the county for continued growth and the rate of new residential building in the county, we should be planning now for a future student population commensurate with that growth instead of playing catch-up as we have been for the last 10 years.
