North Community High School to close?

Since 2004, North Community High School in Minneapolis has had a huge enrollment drop, leaving Superintendent Bernadeia Johnson to propose a shut-down, according to Minnesota Public Radio.

Enrollment has gone from 1,100 to 265 in the past six years. Johnson says the small enrollment makes North Community High the most expensive high school to run in the district.

The school spends nearly $4,000 per student compared to the district-average $1,500, the Associated Press reported.

Forty of the 265 students are freshman, and Johnson said if students don't enroll, the district will close the school.
