    I think that is how much it costs the state. It doesn't cost anything for a family to open enroll their child to another school, but the new school gains the state funding for the student going to school instead of the old school.

    I think you're right. Was East part of the old Metro league?

    Yep, your right. I found this:

    The schools were:
    Southeast Polk
    Newton
    Ankeny
    Urbandale
    Boone

    Re: Proposed CIML Split

    My sources tell me that the proposed split is dead in the water for now and that schools will likely wait until the current scheduling cycle ends (after 2015-16 season) before making any changes to the current CIML.

    It sounds like the whole split was moving too quickly for some of the metro schools and the AD's voiced their opinions to slow things down with regard to splitting up the CIML.

    Re: Proposed CIML Split

    Interesting discussion.

    Of course, things will look pretty different again in about 10 years. New schools will be considered "big" around the Des Moines area. Dallas Center-Grimes and Norwalk will both be over 700 BEDs in 2-3 years. Waukee will split in 4-6 years. Keep an eye on Johnston and SE Polk. Within 5-10 years they will be close to 2000 BEDs and could be pondering split high schools as well. That's easily five new 4A schools in 10 years.

    The next wave will probably come from the Bondurants, Ballards and Gilberts of Central Iowa - give them 10-15 years and they could well be knocking on the door of 700 BEDs.

    Keep watching population growth. The "suburban circle" of the Des Moines metro continues to expand outward - don't be surprised to see towns like Granger, Perry, Pella, Knoxville, Adel, Carlisle, etc. become hotspots for growth.

    I can see Adel and Carlisle definitely reaching that status. But Perry, Pella and Knoxville are all about 40 miles away. In a state like Iowa, we're not going to get a metro area of that size.

    That's probably what it was called, but that was before me. I think the Des Moines schools have always been together.

    Re: Proposed CIML Split

    It was called the Metro Conference. The five city schools, Tech, Dowling, and Valley. Everything else was small potatoes around us then.

    I doubt SE Polk will split. They worked too hard years ago to put that school together. If they do split all the towns would about have to go their own ways and it would cost a lot of money.

    Cedar Falls and Waterloo West are going to blow up size wise in the next 10 years as well. They aren't going to have any other choice going forward, they're going to have to split the top 30-36 into a Class 5A.

    As long as we're talking about the east, how will the new Iowa City Liberty HS change the enrollment numbers in that area?

    Linn-Mar is also already getting huge. However, I think they're planning on splitting soon; same thing with CR Prairie.

    Just got an email from the Indianola school district that said exactly that (in regard to Indianola's decision). They are calling the decision "delayed" until the 2 year schedule is up.
