Declining enrollment

The Wenatchee School District is anticipating that declining enrollment will continue for the next several years, which the district says could result in decreased funding and a decline in staffing.

WENATCHEE — Wenatchee schools will likely see larger classes and fewer staff members in the coming years as a result of decreased enrollment and declining yearly budgets.

Superintendent Paul Gordon on Tuesday presented the budget to the Wenatchee School Board for the 2022-23 school year, which included projected yearly budget, enrollment and staffing numbers for the next four school years.
