A concentrated effort to keep students from leaving a rural Rock County school district for other schools appears to be working. Educators in the Parkview School District are finding ways to keep students from transferring out to different districts. "Our goal staring from last year was to, for lack of a better term, stop the bleeding," says interim Superintendent Patrick Kennedy. "We are actually up about five students from last year." Five students might not seem like a lot, but Kennedy says 88 graduated in a class that started with 64. He says the district disbanded its charter school and joined a consortium of nine schools in Rock and Dane counties to provide more options for at-risk and gifted students.
