Working with the MSBA, the project is based on serving 920 students. That accounts for the 750 or so currently attending the school, moving some vocational programs from Pittsfield High School to Taconic, and then an estimated 100 new tuitioned students.
The MSBA is the driver of enrollment projections and they are tough on it.
Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier
While the school may not be regional, the projected enrollment increase of 100 tuition students is eyed to be the way the school can operate on a regional scale, while not creating the new district.
"We can be a regional solution without creating a new school district," state Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier said. "We can reasonably expect 100 additional students."
