Small school struggles with low enrollmentDecember 25,2013ROCHESTER ó One of Vermontís smallest K-12 schools is trying to transform itself to attract more students as townspeople prepare to discuss its future.
The Valley News reports that residents will discuss the Rochester School on Jan. 13 and then vote the next day on a non-binding referendum on whether to continue to operate a high school or cut back to grades K-8. The school currently has 147 students, with only 55 in high school.
Principal Catherine Knight is leading a thorough reorganization of the school, creating three academies that will focus on technology, the performing arts and sustainability. She says the school doesnít have the teachers or the classes but it can be more creative.MORE IN This Just InRehearsing for an opera is like training for a marathon, says international performing artist...
