Gary Schools make changes amid enrollment push


August 7, 2018

GARY, Ind. (AP) — The cash-strapped Gary school district is aiming to prevent its student population from shrinking further in the new school year by instituting longer class days for elementary students, adding more computers and updating the northwestern Indiana district's cafeterias.

The changes that will be in place when classes begin Aug. 13 are part of a push to hold onto current students and lure others to return to the struggling school district, which has lost thousands of students to charter schools, The Post-Tribune reported.
