District Superintendent Sharon Kherat says enrollment is down at least 444 students compared to this time last year. That number wasn’t part of last night’s official budget presentation.
Enrollment is at 12,824, compared to 13,268 last year and 13,354 in 2013, Kherat said.
Staff skirted answering exactly how large class sizes would be, saying more firm numbers are expected after Labor Day. The district also started the year with 53 fewer teachers compared to last fall. School board member Dan Adler says lower enrollment numbers would affect the final classroom tally.
