It's no surprise that interest in this year's draft reasignment plan is higher than what it was in recent years.
As noted in today's article, the plan received 112,564 page views in the first seven hours it was online. There were also 346 comments and 10,362 PDF downloads during that time period.
Contrast that to last year's draft plan.
The plan was released last year at 5 p.m. on a Friday. There were 85,469 page views and 220 comments in the first 16 hours. By 9:56 a.m. on Monday, there were 99,879 page views.
There were more page views in 2006 — 121,747. But it took 71 hours from the time it was released at 5 p.m. Friday. There were also 419 comments during that window.
It's a safe bet to say that this year's plan will surpass the 2006 figures over an equivalent 71-hour period.
Having three years in the new plan compared to one year in the prior ones does give a natural advantage.
Broughton and Panther Creek high schools continued to be the most viewed schools in this year's plan.
