Kathy Addresses Increasing School Enrollment


Press conf. at Clark School


On May 27, Kathy described the challenges faced by Charlottesville schools in light of significant increases in enrollment over the past 4 years, especially in grades K – 4.

‘Galvin says council needs to closely work with the School Board on the issue. “As that bumper crop of children start passing through the system, we need to make sure that we’ve got the right room for children to learn, and the right room for teachers to teach,” she said.

Galvin also plans to expand access to the city’s pre-kindergarten, saying that would help single mothers by reducing childcare costs.’
