West Central School Board Concerned about Enrollment Numbers

The West Central School Board discussed enrollment at their meeting last week.

The Average Daily Membership (ADM) taken at the beginning of this year was 824 students compared to 865 last year. This translates to a $250,100 loss in state support as tuition money follows the student. The actual ADM count will be in September when all students are encouraged to be in class that day so the School Corporation can receive all the money it can for every student that is enrolled.

And now that the wind turbine project is picking up speed, the Board is planning a ground-breaking ceremony for the new wind turbine in September. The apparatus will be erected on school grounds and will provide wind energy for the Corporation.
