Announcements: Urgent Schools information

Make sure you’ve made your voice heard, and talk to your friends and neighbors.  Here are two things you should do.

  1. Please remember to complete the APS survey BY FRIDAY, FEB 24 at Note that LCN supports Option A, and the statement details talking points about the options and our preferences going forward. Survey responses are permitted from EACH ADULT in the household.
  2. Please review (and sign if you agree) the Renew Grady Cluster Petition ASAP at This is a cross-neighborhood grassroots effort. The approach presented is 90% consistent with the Lake Claire Neighbors principles. It advocates for a defined Grady Cluster that includes Mary Lin and we think that’s important. Again, responses are permitted from EACH ADULT in the household. In the notes section, please identify yourself as a Lake Claire resident.

In the survey and petition comments section, be sure to mention Mary Lin’s expansion, and the need to think about alternative grade configurations as a shared solution for the Grady cluster. The cluster’s elementary schools are overcrowded. And Inman Middle is or will be soon. APS needs to know of our support for expanding Mary Lin. Meanwhile a neighborhood task force is looking at innovative solutions such as a cross-cluster 5/6 or 6th grade academy; APS needs to see our interest in a full range of creative solutions.
