TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Seaman school board members were briefed Monday night on how the district is handling an increase in students.
USD 345 saw a record number of students enrolled for the 2012-2013 school year, topping 3900 students. District officials say everything is under control. For example, hey have already split classrooms once they became too large.
The record enrollment did bring some firsts, though. Spokesperson Jeff Zehnder says, for the first time, the district had to cap out-of-district transfer students at the K-through-6 level. He says the district is seeing growth within its own boundaries as well.
Also Monday night, the board approved a study to look at energy savings around the district and approved changes to the math curriculum, which will begin in 2014.
