Like it or not, Trenton Public Schools are now schools of choice.
Trenton Board of Education members voted in favor of allowing limited open enrollment for kindergarten and first and ninth grades.
The decision came down after a history of declining student enrollment and reduced state funding to the district. Over the last five years, enrollment has reduced by almost 350 students, resulting in a loss of over $3 million according to interim Superintendent Larry Leapley.
Under limited open enrollment, district officials reserve the right to deny enrollment to students not living in Trenton, who have been suspended in the last two years.
Since Monday's decision, a number of theories and opinions have been passed back and forth by Trenton residents via Trenton Patch and Facebook.
