System needs more space as it see its first enrollment growth in a decade

From The Minneapolis Star-Tribune: The Minneapolis school district will reopen three closed schools and shift more than 4,000 pupils to accommodate a projected increase in student enrollment. The school board has approved the final pieces of the $45 million plan. District leaders predict that reopening, shifting and renovating schools will ease a space crunch that has packed classrooms across large swaths of the city. Enrollment in Minneapolis is up 330 students this fall, the first increase in a decade, and the growth is projected to continue for several years.
