Late signups up school kindergarten numbers

A fourth kindergarten class will be added to Conneaut Valley Elementary School due to increased class numbers largely brought on by families signing their children up in the last two weeks before school started.

The decision to add a fourth class was informally decided by Conneaut Board of Education members meeting in September work session at Conneaut Lake Middle School September 3.

As of the meeting night, the three CVE kindergarten classes had 25 students in each class with several parents addressing the board regarding their concerns of what they considered the high numbers.

Sixteen students were registered for kindergarten in the two weeks before school began, that up from the 59 registered in April.
