    If you have parents sign a petition for a junior high school with only two grades, by the time the trigger is implemented, their children will be aged out.

    A school belongs to the community. Not to the parents. It belongs to the people whose children are not yet old enough for school as much as those who have just graduated.

    There's no mechanism to undo a trigger.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
