The School’s Report Card

April 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

The 2007-2008 testing and accountability statistics have been released for all schools in the state, so here is a link to the Whitehall Central School Districts info.

If you look at the Accounting and Overview Report (page 2), you’ll notice that in a 3 year period enrollment has dropped from 860 to 845 students and the average class size has fallen from 20 to 18. If you further look at the demographics by class, you’ll see this trend will most likely continue to drop in the years ahead. The school boards response and planning for this? Ask the voters to approve $500,000 which was over budgeted this year, to be put in reserve accounts to fund future expansion. Unbelievable!

But then again, if you’re a reader of the Huletts Current, you’ve known this for some time…..
