Enrollment Changes

I was half-heartedly reading through this post on enrollment changes in Iowa school districts when I came across something that gave me pause.  There were a lot of the expected names for most growth, Waukee, Ankeny, Dallas Center-Grimes, although a few made me curious, Rock Valley, Postville and Pleasant Valley. 
It was in the shrinking districts category that I came across a familiar name.  #3 by percentage, Farragut.  It shrunk 20% over 5 years (that's -52 students). I guess that explains why they are now in whole grade sharing.  Fare thee well Admirals.
