Student population drop cause concern for Wa-Nee
NAPPANEE — Much of the discussion during last week's Wa-Nee School Board of Trustee's meeting was centered around next year's student population.
After kindergarten round up, the projective enrollment rates for Wa-Nee Schools were down by 56 kindergarten students.
Wakarusa Elementary School is expected to have 60 kindergarteners and 520 students total; Woodview Elementary School is expected to have 79 kindergarteners and 506 students total; and Nappanee Elementary School is expected to have 65 kindergarteners with 350 students total. The drop in students is reflected strongly at Wakarusa Elementary School, where the average number of students at the school is around 90.
