Hundreds of students started the school year with hot classrooms and no air conditioning. While that problem went away as the weather cooled down, another issue for kids remains - crowded classroom.

School administrators in Baltimore County are looking ahead and wondering what the next decade looks like. Classrooms in Baltimore County high schools are expected to fall 17-hundred seats short by the year 2027.

The Baltimore County School system is hosting three public meetings to talk about how to solve the problem. The first one takes place Tuesday night at New Town High School in Owings Mills. If you can't make it to one of the public meetings -- another survey goes online Tuesday and is available until October 7th.
