Fifth grade class expected to reach 550 enrolled next year

Assistant Superintendent for Educational Services George Mavroulis provided his monthly update on projected enrollment for the 2015-16 school year at the Board of Education regular meeting on April 27.

He pointed out there are large class sizes at fourth and fifth grade but some drops at the younger elementary level. He said there will be more than 550 fifth-graders next year, the largest class of any K-12 grade in the District.

He said birth rates declined during the recession, which explains why enrollment was down for this year's kindergarten class along with next year's class. However, the University of Wisconsin Applied Population Lab expects those numbers to increase starting in 2016-17.
