TONIGHT: School board to discuss enrollment

With enrollment numbers increasing faster than expected, the elementary school board is scheduled to hear a demographic analysis at tonight's meeting that will help trustees plan accordingly.

This year, the Mountain View Whisman Elementary School District saw enrollment numbers not expected until 2011, and trustees had to alter school boundaries and move a parent participation program to deal with the larger student body. Those were short-term measures, however, and the demographic analysis to be discussed tonight should allow trustees to make long-term plans regarding enrollment.

Tonight's meeting is in the multipurpose room of Huff Elementary School, 253 Martens Ave., beginning at 6:30 p.m. Huff's teachers and administrators also will give a presentation about the campus during the meeting.

I don't think anyone went to the meeting...they were all on this board complaining about the "abusive teacher".
