Why do we need to build a new school if enrollment has decreased? (Updated 1/9/2023)

Posted by:

Year over year, our enrollment numbers have been steady in our elementary schools, but we have added programs such as all-day kindergarten, which requires smaller class sizes and additional spaces not currently available in our elementary schools.  The elementary schools are overcrowded with approximately 24 temporary, portable classrooms accommodating the additional students and programs. Every available classroom space is utilized in our schools and more space is needed. Approximately 430 elementary school students are in portable classrooms on a daily basis.
