School system may cap enrollment at West Towson
At last night's Baltimore County school board meeting, administrators said that if more students continue to enroll at West Towson this fall, they may cap the enrollment. Such an action would mean that families who move into the area zoned for West Towson would not be allowed to go there, but would be sent to another school. West Towson, which opened last year primarily to relieve crowding at Rodgers Forge Elementary, is apparently now the hot school to go to. So this action, if taken, could really frustrate parents. Of course, West Towson was the school that parents fought two years ago to keep their students out of because they wanted them at the familiar Rodgers Forge.
In any event, West Towson now has 50 students more than it was built to handle, and perhaps more in the coming days will show up to register. But for safety reasons, the school cannot add trailers in the back. There's very little space on the site.
