Despite Wapakoneta City Schools recently approving a list of 140 open enrollment students from other districts, nearly double that number are leaving each year.
“It is a concern,” Wapakoneta City Schools Superintendent Keith Horner said.
He said there are a multitude of reasons why students choose to leave the district each year.
“Some live closer to another district, some are unhappy with us, some like a small school setting be it Perry or New Knoxville,” Horner said, “and some have had disagreements with us over the years.”
