• There are four methods that are commonly used to acquire school sites. These methods include; land donation by individual  property owners, proffered sites from developers, land procurement from landowners,  and condemnation.  Historically, a large number of public school sites in Stafford County were proffered by developers to support future students slated to reside in newly developed residential communities. Steady growth in housing development and student enrollment has depleted almost all proffered school sites in the SCPS inventory.
