The district has submitted three boudary proposals for parent review. Each calculate the number of students in the Holbrook Farms neighborhood at 32 students, and the Exchange neghborhood at 30 students. 

Parents living nearby have taken it upon themselves to gather enrollment data using a voluntary parent survey and knocking doors in the Holbrook Farms and Exchange neighborhoods. In just three days they have nearly triple the number of prospective students as the district for the 2019 and 2020 school years.
