New options revealed for to help overcrowding in south Oklahoma City schools

U.S. Grant HS

OKLAHOMA CITY – The interim superintendent for the state’s largest school district is revealing a new set of options for relieving overcrowding problems on the south side of the district.

At first, district officials planned to relocate some students to schools on the north side of town.

Now, interim superintendent Dave Lopez says the district will not be moving forward with those plans.

Instead, the leaders have developed a new list of options to address the overpopulation at U.S. Grant and Capitol Hill high schools.

New recommendations were presented to the Oklahoma City school board last night including installing portable classrooms at both schools.

Adding permanent classrooms to both schools is also an option.

Leaders are also looking at sites for new elementary and middle schools.

Lopez said the final plans will included some or all of the proposed options.
