FRSD Elementary Enrollment Balancing Committee Presentations

All EES/VES parents are invited to a parent forum Thursday, February 23rd from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM in the Elmira Elementary library.

On the agenda will be a presentation from the Elementary Enrollment Balancing committee. This group, composed of staff from both elementary schools, has been looking into ongoing enrollment concerns; chief among them how to balance class size between the two buildings. With enrollment at Veneta projected to grow, keeping class sizes equitable between the two schools is a concern. Gary Carpenter, Fern Ridge School District superintendent, along with members of the Elementary Enrollment Equalization committee will outline what the enrollment problems are and some possible solutions the committee has been exploring. This is a great opportunity for parents to get information directly from the source and provide feedback that will help the district in finding an answer to this ongoing problem.

  • I am not supportive of splitting the elementary schools according to grades. I have five children in Fern Ridge school district and that could possibly mean that I would have five children in four different schools. I don’t find it advantageous for families to have their elementary level children split up into two different schools. I cannot be at the meeting Thursday night but I hope something comes home so that my voice can be heard. It seems to me that the best way to solve this problem would be to re-zone.

    • Thank you Shelli!

      I will print this comment for the committee. There will also be a survey link available 🙂
