The Enrollment and Capacity Management Advisory Committee is resuming its work to analyze enrollment and building data, and to share its observations and recommendations with district administration.
Last year's committee report identified overcapacity conditions at three elementary schools (Basswood, Rice Lake and Garden City), one middle school (Brooklyn) and all three comprehensive high schools. Administrators are now exploring potential options for addressing current capacity concerns and future enrollment growth.
One option, among other potential actions, could be adding space at some schools through a state-authorized funding mechanism (lease levy). At this time, however, no specific actions have been approved. If space additions are eventually approved by the school board, they would be implemented in Fall 2020 or later.
