Declining school enrollment
May 17, 2022
I am sad that La Conner School District is experiencing declining enrollment. This could force budget cuts that make it tough on kids and staff.
My guess is that it has less to do with local children going to private schools or homeschooling than it does with the fact that young families cannot find affordable housing in our district.
I know of several families who moved away because they could not find a place to live.
Are we a rich retired community now?
