WCPSS staff expect that just over 100 students will be capped out at Enloe High School for the 2015-2016 school year.
This number is based on data from the 2014-2015 year. During the first three months of the school year, Enloe added 113 students to its base population. That’s a 10 percent increase in the base population, and is greater than the increase seen at Athens Drive and Broughton high schools during the same period of time.
Athens Drive and Broughton were recommended as the two schools for those capped out students to attend. Using a map that shows where those 113 students moved into the Enloe base area, staff recommended students living south of MLK Blvd. attend Athens Drive, and those living north of MLK attend Broughton.
These recommendations take advantage of existing transportation routes for Broughton High. However, an additional two to three buses will be needed to carry students to Athens Drive. An estimated cost of $35,000 per bus was provided by the transportation department.
A final decision will be made at an upcoming Board of Education meeting.
