WILMINGTON, N.C. (June 3, 2014) – The Wilmington Regional Association of Realtors® (WRAR) and the Realtors® Commercial Alliance of Southeastern NC (RCASENC) asserts its firm support for the New Hanover County School Bond. At last night’s meeting, the County Commissioners decided to place this issue on the 2014 ballot this November.
Jody Wainio, President of WRAR, expresses her growing concerns on the county’s growth in relation to the quality of education that children are receiving. “As of today, New Hanover County Schools are overcapacity by 3,548 students including elementary, middle and high schools. The district is using 84 modular units to offset the overcrowding,” states Wainio.
“The State of North Carolina estimates an additional increase of 2,000 students will take place by 2020. Unfortunately, to date, the County has been blowing past State estimates. The likely more accurate number is 3,000 additional students,” affirmed Wainio.
