Weldy, Gilbert T.
This newsletter describes the role of principals in managing the effects of declining enrollment. Suggestions are provided regarding the decision-making process, staff reassignment, student transfer, curriculum modification, disposition of equipment and materials, and how to deal with parent and student concerns. The experiences of five school districts faced by declining enrollments are described to illustrate the many factors that must be considered when declining enrollment leads to school closure. (JEH)
