Expansion plan

Enrollment numbers spur school expansion

Email News Alerts

Steadily increasing enrollment has pushed Menahga School toward another expansion project.

Superintendent Mary Klamm is projecting an additional 41 students this fall, for a total enrollment of 859 students. By the 2015-16 school year, enrollment projections are at 925 students.


"These are conservative numbers," she said. "As our numbers get bigger the growth we're seeing is not open enrollment."

The need for more classroom and lunchroom space is immediate.
