Wayzata School District Forms Taskforce to Address Student Growth
The Wayzata School District has formed a special taskforce in response to its growing student population.
According to the Sun Sailor, the task force will review student enrollment, housing trends and demographic data in order to make recommendations to the school board about how to best accommodate the growth at the elementary level.
After reviewing a recent housing study, the district expects approximately another 1,000 K-12 students by 2019 if current housing trends continue, the newspaper reported.
“Demand for our schools has never been greater, and we are grateful that families are choosing the Wayzata Schools to provide an excellent learning experience for their child,” Superintendent Chace Anderson reportedly said. “This growth is putting pressure on our schools, and we need to proactively and strategically address meeting student needs.”
The goal is to have the task force’s draft recommendation ready for review by the school board’s Jan. 23 meeting.
