High school enrollment is uneven

August 13, 2007

Albany--  One Dougherty County high school seems to be packed with students. School leaders may soon look at ways to get more even enrollment at all four high schools.

Right now, Westover High School has nearly 1,200 students while the other three high schools have an enrollment of only about 600 to 800 students.  That's not nearly as many students as the schools can hold.

School board member David Maschke says the the schools are out of wack and the system should look at possibly rezoning the high schools. Michael Windom says in the future the board could look at whether four schools are needed in the county.

School leaders will look at enrollment numbers over the next couple of weeks and then come up with solutions.
