What this means is that those student already enrolled will continue and that no "new" or "additional" students will be accepted into the program this year.
If I recall correctly from prior School Committee meetings, the district has approximately 50 students enrolled in the program. This is down from 2 years ago when there 70-plus students in the program.
The district's choice really was "Can we afford to fill in a few empty slots to gain the additional revenue?" When the slots would commit the district to providing the education to those students for the full program (K-12) and due to the significant reduction in teachers over the past several years, growing the average class size, the answer was "No."
