Re: EBR Parish school board holds forum at Polk Elementary

I work at Polk and I can tell you that the 51% capacity figure is misleading. Mr. Dilworth states that the school has a capacity of 383. thats 15 classrooms x 25 students in each room = 375. Whats he's not saying is that there are 5 classrooms that cannot be filled to capacity because of certain regulations that cap their numbers. That's a computer lab, 2 special Ed., 2 pre-k classes. The acutal capacity is 10 classrooms x 25 students = 250 capacity. That's 80% of the capacity not 51%.
