The SRVUSD has woefully underestimated the number of people that would move into Doughterty Valley===translation, the developers have not paid nearly enough in school district fees to pay for construction for new schools to service the students. That is why the District is paying for the new school there and has had to pay for expansion at Dougherty High, which was overcrowded the day it opened! Meanwhile, the District claims it has plenty of room to accommodate kids from the just-approved 69+ home SummerHill development in the Diablo Road area, and for the Elworthy 100-unit development along SRV Blvd. across from 680=south. The District will say whatever is necessary to serve developer interests and the Town of Danville's interest in constant developer planning fees to pay for its bloated staff.
