The up-Island school committee last week agreed to rescind a previous vote placing a hold on enrollments from outside of the district, although some committee members said they would like to shrink the number of students from other towns.

“We have far more kids coming into the district than we do going out,” committee member Robert Lionette said.

Late last month, the committee voted to not accept any out-of-district students because of concerns about the costs of the accepting the students and the district’s space crunch.

With Jeffrey (Skipper) Manter abstaining, the committee voted unanimously to rescind that March 20 vote, restoring a policy that allows school principals to decide what out-of-district students they can accept based on classroom space.

This year, more than 50 down-Island children attend the West Tisbury School, while only 14 children from up-Island are enrolled outside the district.
