Lincoln Park has largest enrollment increase

March 8, 2012

Lincoln Park Elementary has been on Superintendent Malcolm Thomas’ chopping block for nearly a year. The mistake he made this time was to tell parents, teachers and church leaders that was his intention. Led by Principal Christine Nixon and area pastors, the school led, without any support from the District Administration, a door-to-door campaign to recruit students. The School District spends thousands to recruit students for the magnet schools and for its new Global Learning Academy, but Lincoln Park got no help.

The grassroots effort worked. Even though the district lost over 400 students from October 2011 to February 2012, Lincoln Park picked up 61 students. Montclair -another predominately minority school that has been removed for closure – and Warrington elementary schools both picked up over 30 new students.

Both middle and high schools lost students. Escambia High lost 82, while Tate and Pine Forest lost 61 each.
