Zionsville — Due to an increase in enrollment, Zionsville Community Schools' board members will have to find a solution on how to alleviate overcrowding in two school buildings.

ZCS Chief Operations Officer Bob Bostwick gave a brief presentation on the 2013 report on building capacities during the Wednesday night, Oct. 24, meeting.

He said the district has added 200 students, 126 of those students in grades kindergarten through fourth grade, in the 2012-13 school year so far. Bostwick said the increase in enrollment is partially due to full day kindergarten.

“Some buildings are close to capacity,” Bostwick said. “We are still in good shape overall at some of the elementary schools and very good shape at the middle school level although two situations will need to be addressed.”
