Although the difference from last year is less than 10, the South Page School enrollment for this school year is 110 from kindergarten through 12th grade.
The numbers were reviewed during the school board’s meeting held Monday, Nov. 11.
“It’s not as drastic of a drop,” said Superintendent Tim Hood about the number students in the building. There are eight fewer students than last year.
South Page has more than 80 students who live in the district but are open-enrolled to other districts.
The board approved the purchase of six Promethean boards for $16,700. The boards act like an electronic chalkboard and monitor to a computer. The devices can be written on and display various computer files and programs.
South Page is replacing its Promethean boards that are showing their age and use.
“We try and get the technology in front of the kids,” Hood said.
Of the six, two of them will be mounted and the other four will be mobile.
