Hood River Schools Deal With Capacity Issues

It’s too early to draw full conclusions on enrollment, but after one week of classes in the Hood River County School District it is apparent that three elementary schools are at capacity.  Superintendent Dan Goldman says the crowding issues are at Westside, May Street. and Mid-Valley elementary schools.  He says they are reaching a crisis point, and while they were able to add a teacher at Mid-Valley and a kindergarten teacher at Westside was brought in to handle an unexpected jump in enrollment, there isn’t really any place else in those facilities to create more classroom space.  The district is in the midst of a long-term facilities planning process, and recommendations are expected from a committee in a few months.
