REDMOND, OR -- As Redmond Proficiency Academy nears the end of its annual open enrollment period, administrators face a new concern - making sure class sizes are even. Executive Director Jon Bullock tells KBND, "Because of the growth we've had over the past six years, we have some grade level bubbles. Like, for example, we have a large group of seniors who are leaving us - probably around 140, or so - and that's our largest class right now. Ideally we would like our classes to be more aligned in size."  

 

Bullock adds, "Sixth grade is a big need for us, because we don't have a feeder program bringing in students transitioning from fifth to sixth grade.  And, as a charter school, we have to put ourselves out there as a choice for families because families typically go wherever their nearest school is."  

 

RPA will close open enrollment for the 2015/16 school year at 5 p.m. on Sunday.  They expect to have around 300 openings for new students, out of the school's maximum of 800 students in grades 6-12.
