Capacity cut from 2,700 students to 2,160 students
From Bethesda Beat
As costs increase, Montgomery County Public Schools has adjusted its plans for the renovated Charles W. Woodward High School, removing several classrooms and reducing the maximum capacity by about 540 students.
Original plans called for an enrollment of 2,700 students, but on Thursday, the school board voted to approve new plans that cut the capacity to 2,160 students. Sixteen classrooms will be removed to shrink the school’s size by about 35,575 square feet.
Adjusting the plan now will allow for it to remain on schedule while still accomplishing three key goals:
• House students from Northwood High while their school is rebuilt
• Reopen as its own school once Northwood students depart
• Be home to a high school arts program
