Career Center Parking Questions — “Residents living in neighborhoods adjacent to the Arlington Career Center parcel may find themselves sharing on-street parking with students and teachers once the massive rebuild of the parcel is complete. The county school system has proposed a 360-space parking garage as part of the $175 million project, but planners do not believe that will be enough space to accommodate the need.” [Sun Gazette]

More on the Return to School — “Superintendent Dr. Francisco Durán says there are new start and end times which has helped make the bus system more efficient since there are fewer bus routes. The change also makes sure more students can spend more time in the classroom. When it comes to staffing, Durán says APS is 99% staffed this year. The district is actually in a better place than before after increasing teacher compensation by 6.8% on average. Student enrollment is also up.” [WJLA, Twitter]

Dems’ Annual Chili Cookoff Nears — “As Arlington Democrats prepare for the final two-month road trip toward Election Day, the party is preparing to get gassed up. The Arlington County Democratic Committee will hold its annual Labor Day Chili Cookoff on Monday, Sept. 5 from 2 to 5 p.m. at Lyon Park Community Center. The annual event sees teams representing elected officials, candidates and others vying for a host of culinary awards.” [Sun Gazette]

New W-L Hoops Coach — “Prior to working at W-L, [new head coach Liz] Altmaier coached as a girls assistant at Marshall and McLean high schools in Fairfax County… In college, she played Division I varsity basketball at Harvard University. During her time there, Harvard won two Ivy League championships. In high school, Altmaier was a three-year starter at Pinewood School in Los Altos, Calif.
