Size of the District "Comps" - Size Matters!

The chart below from the same District data (see shows that our new school program does not fall "well within the averages" as the Board asserts! And remember, this is a hand-selected list of 6 schools, built over the last 8 years, all over the State of Michigan. There are a hundred more that the district chose not to bring forth during that time period and geography. Remember, the Midwest average is 170 sf/student, but we all know that BHSD is not average. The top 10% in the entire nation only comes in at 219 sf/student - we are 275 sf/student!
