West Fargo schools can expect 'significant growth' over the next 10 years
A consultant is predicting significant growth in the West Fargo school system over the next ten years.
West Fargo school superintendent Dr. David Flowers is planning to meet with a subcommittee of the school board to go over the results. But he gave a preview to a North Dakota Legislative committee. Flowers says the projection was prepared by RSP and Associates.
"The report is showing that the West Fargo schools will grow over the next ten years from its current enrollment of 9,100 students in 2014-15 to 14,500 students in 2024-25.," Flowers told the House Education Committee. "We will continue to grow at a rate of 500 to 600 students per year."
Flowers was testifying on a bill to give additional state aid to growing school districts.
