"Not in the immediate future, but we're going to have to take a look at how many units are being built, how many of those are moving in with families and determine then whether or not we need to look at another school or whatever because there are just that many housing plans going in up there," Duerring told the Daily Mail in December.
Developer Alan Bell has pledged to help raise the additional $250,000 the school system needs to complete the John Adams addition. Duerring said he hopes Bell can raise the money and the project is still in the design phase.
Bell recently told the Daily Mail he had put up $25,000 of his own money for the project and hoped others would follow suit. He did not return a phone message Wednesday.
The county does plan to shift some students among other schools when Duerring presents a redistricting plan to the board in late February.
Some attendance zones for Overbrook Elementary School in South Hills will be altered to address overcrowding there, Duerring said. Affected students would attend either Kenna or Holz elementary schools, in a planned shift the school system has kicked around for the past few months following complaints from Overbrook parents.
On Charleston's West Side, some students at Mary C. Snow West Side Elementary School will be shifted to Grandview Elementary School in North Charleston. Mary C. Snow is over capacity by about 150 students. Grandview needs more students, according to both schools' principals.
Duerring said some students attending Flinn Elementary School would be moved to Sissonville Elementary School.
Duerring said he would present the details at the regular board meeting Feb. 21. It's scheduled for 6 p.m. at the board offices on Elizabeth Street.
