Will the district reconsider the projected number of incoming students to the WCSD because families are leaving the city and moving up to Dutchess County due to the pandemic?

Thank you for your consideration,

We do not have any information that correlates home sales to school-aged children that would help us with these projections.  Not only would we need home sale data reports that show school-aged children moving into a home in the District, but we would also need reports that show the families school district of origin to help us ascertain if the families who are buying homes are new to our community, or if they are simply moving from within the District.
