Declining Enrollments: Implications.
Sealey, Robert D.
The superintendent of a suburban Seattle school district discusses four of the positive implications of declining school enrollments. First, the school enrollment trend is known. Second, there are going to be empty classrooms, which means that special programs that were slighted when facilities were crowded can now be adequately housed. Third, the need for outstanding leadership and planning may lead to creative approaches to meeting the district's needs. Fourth, and most important, declining enrollments can provide opportunities for things to happen that might otherwise never come about--in school programs, in community activities, in housing for groups that are financially burdened, and in community involvement in the schools.
