The Crestview Local School District is near maximum capacity for open enrollment. The district has seen an influx of students over the past couple of years and most classrooms are full.
Superintendent John Dilling said the district is “capped out” at many grade levels with 1,260 students in the district. Some spots are still open for the 2013-2014 school year, but vary by age group and grade.
“I think Crestview is a great community, they provide a lot of support for our school. We have a great staff. They do wonderful things with children, they always put children first,” said Dilling. “We have great facilities. I think that makes a difference, and I think that’s what students and parents are looking for in a school district.”
Dilling said about one-third of the student population came to the district through open enrollment. He said the group is an asset to the district, not only for the $2.3 million in state money that comes with them, but most of the students perform well on standardized tests, and scores have increased in the district.
