FWCS #1 by default

Indy media reported to day that IPS has lost 1500 students from 2011 while FWCS lost about 350. That makes FWCS the largest district in the state in terms of enrollment. It should be noted that four IPS schools were taken over by the state and converted to charters. About 1700 student chose to transfer to other IPS schools instead of going with the new charters, so the losses in Indy could have been much worse. In all about 500 appear to have opted out of IPS or former IPS schools entirely. But we need to see the state figures on vouchers and charter school enrollment to see what's really going on.

Nevertheless we expect GiaQuinta to organize a celebration featuring the high school bands.
