ROCHESTER, Minn.- The 5-year Enrollment Projection Report said Rochester Public schools are seeing a surge in students enrolling in elementary and middle schools.
The Rochester School Board is expected to use the report to determine what is the next step to address the the need for more space.
KIMT News 3 spoke to parents in Rochester about the surge of families moving to the city.
Meredith White is a mother of 3 who lives in Rochester. She said she’s noticed a lot of new housing but not new schools. She also said that she’s confident the School Board will make the right choice for their students.
“I’m think they will make the best decision for the kids,” said White “They are more pros than cons to having more people in Rochester.”
We reached out to Rochester Public Schools to learn more about their plans but they have yet to comment.
