Moving Target

The first thing a new Superintendent of Schools might want to do is attempt figure out exactly how capacity for 150 students was suddenly lost.

The 2007 figures for building capacity (see previous post) showed College Hill elementary with capacity for 600 students. However, the bond issue fact information from the USD 259 website shows that the capacity for College Hill elementary is only 450 students.

Here are a couple more interesting notes from College Hill:

-There was a new addition built in 2006. Yet, here we are again two years later planning another addition.

-The projected capacity of College Hill will remain at 600, even under the 2008 bond issue plan.

-The District will spend $600,000 on a school with declining enrollment. In 2006 school year enrollment was 422 students at College Hill. In December 2007 it was 398 students.
