CCSD Math Doesn’t add up in Orchard Station Analysis

Read my letter and analysis to the City of Greenwood Village.

In the January 2017 Greenwood Village newsletter, Cherry Creek School District submitted a full-page contribution (page 27 of the Newsletter) regarding the potential impact that developments in the proposed Orchard Station Subarea may have on the Cherry Creek Schools.

The District’s conclusion in the article is that the annual impact is 25 students or two students per grade.  This grossly understates the impact.  Using the “national standards” CCSD provided in the article, the Orchard Station developments are projected to produce 300 students, which equals 23 students per grade — essentially an additional classroom of students for each grade K-12.
