WCSD enrollment outlook stable for next five years
According to Dr. Grossman, increases in elementary and middle school enrollments will increase over the next five years while high school enrollment will decrease. The report concludes that no changes in attendance areas, facilities, or open enrollment options would be necessary due to enrollment fluctuations through 2024. Among the key factors considered in the projection analysis are in-migration,i.e., families moving into the district; changes in kindergarten enrollments; current district enrollment; and the economy.
Following the presentation, the Board voted to keep the following schools available for open enrollment in 2019-2020: Forest and Dodge elementary schools; Casey and Heim middle schools; and all three Williamsville high schools.
Dr. Grossman's presentation is available in BoardDocs, under the Superintendents Report for the November 13, 2018 meeting .
