Field school administrators say the school is enrolling around 70 students on average, but enrollment numbers are approaching 100 for the fall. Field School deputy chief administrator Leo Connally says he attributes the increase in enrollment to parents who want their children to return to class.
âFamilies want in-person learning, and knowing that we are following all guidelines with COVID mitigation and meeting the needs of all of our students, I think families have seen it,â he said. declared.
Connally says the surge in enrollment means the school needs seven new hires.
âWe just want to make sure that we keep our student / faculty ratio low,â he said. “We want to make sure that the students have this one-on-one with our faculty members.”
Connally says individual efforts will begin on Monday with a skills training camp. The program is a two-week session that will cover coursework, such as pre-algebra, grammar review, and study skills. The goal is to make sure students are ready to be back in person.
âA lot of students were learning virtually on Zoom or Hybrid. We just want to make sure the students are up to the task, to take on the challenge of the next academic year,â Connally said.
Students must be between nine and 15 years of age to be eligible for camp. Closing of registrations this Friday. Click on here for more information.
