I think JoePA should hire another consultant to figure all this out.

It's nice to see CASD finally catching up to the rest of the country. The 6-7 grade middle schools & 8-9 junior high schools are a thing of the past in most states.
But why are the two schools going to be sharing sorts teams? That will take away from the identity of both schools. And if sports practices and games are held more often at one of the schools (CAMS, most likely?), then the teams will be unbalanced in regards to representatives for each school. Looks like a meeting to attend...

The point should be what is best for the students! I believe (hope) that is what the change is about.

If Route 30 is the dividing line to determine which school students attend, why are Marion students slated to attend the current Faust school. Isn't Marion south of Route 30 with the other schools north? Please don't call the schools North and South because if Marion attends Faust they will be south but attend North school! Also, the names North and South divide a town -- just look at Hagerstown!!!!!!!!!! Save the Trojan mascot for the high school -- pick another for the middle schools. Hopefully, the administrators and board members are smart enough to choose a more appropriate name and mascot.

The town being divided will happen whether they are north and south or CAMS and FAMS.

Why would Marion students go to Faust? No need to divide by calling one North and One South. Give one school a numerical suffix and the other an alpha suffix. Both would have the same status with no school being labeled #2 or school "B". One would be CAMS1 and the other CAMSA. Using CAMS and FAMS gives one school a town designation and is more recognizable than a local person's last name. Definitely need an appropriate dress code. Do parents not care that their children look like tent city refugees? These kids need to be issued a few fashion tickets and their parents need a few fines.

As far as mascot names, you might as well stick with the condom theme.

The schools share sports teams now why would we incur additional costs for separate sports teams? How much is a complete name change going to cost the taxpayers?
