While plans to replace Towson High School are still in the earliest stages, two groups made up of parents and community members, have already formed, each pushing for different solutions to rectify problems of overcrowding and failing infrastructure among others at the nearly 70-year-old school.
The first group calling themselves New in 22, formed in 2016, has rallied to see a new 1,800-seat high school built by 2022 with petition drives, letter campaigns and public comment at Baltimore County Public School meetings.
But meanwhile, Phoebe Letocha and a group of about 25 other parents and community members believe New in 22’s agenda does not represent the interests of all stakeholders.
Although Letocha’s group does not have a “catchy name,” she said, she and other members of her group would like to see a smaller Towson High School achieved possibly through redistricting to preserve the feeling of a smaller neighborhood school. They also want to prevent building out too close to adjacent Herring Run stream.
