The board of education will discuss and possibly vote on reinstating open enrollment at its Tuesday meeting.

The school district currently has 81 open- enrollment students who entered the school before it closed open enrollment in the 2010 school year.

Joe Nohra, board of education president, said that it closed down open enrollment because all the student slots were filled.

But now the district has a $700,000 budget shortfall for next year even after the board approved $1.2 million in cuts to staff.

Nohra said the district is surrounded by open-enrollment schools and needs to do something to draw more students.

The district has 134 students attending other public schools through the program, creating a net loss of more than $300,000 in state foundation money when compared with the open-enrollment students it gained.

A school district receives about $5,700 in state foundation money per open-enrollment student.

The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. in the high-school community room.
