As promised, here is the central office report with schools identified as struggling with enrollment — and possible interventions. Attendance boundary shifts, extra support, mergers, new school “incubations” and closures are all on the table.
The schools on the low enrollment list are:
EXCEL, Burckhalter, Martin Luther King Jr., Howard and Lafayette
The schools on the enrollment and academic list are:
BEST, Youth Empowerment School, Sankofa, Explore College Prep, Peralta Creek
The report will be presented to the school board on Wednesday. According to the timeline, central office administrators will have met with each school’s staff and families by mid-week, but I just spoke to one principal who said she hadn’t heard about it.
