INDIAN LAND – Indian Land Elementary School is bracing itself for yet another spike in student enrollment for the upcoming year.
Principal Beth Blum said her staff expects about 1,200 students when school starts in August. That will be 100 more than the nearly 1,100 the school housed in 2008-09.
So far, 1,165 have enrolled for the 2009-10 school year.
To address the growth, the school will be using four more outdoor mobile units as classrooms – bringing the total number of what Blum calls “learning cottages” at the school to 10.
