The Trussville City Board of Education last week approved of adding two more portable classrooms at Paine Primary School.
The portables will be a project this summer, said Trussville City Schools Superintendent Pattie Neill.
Neill said the two portables are being added “due to student enrollment.”
Paine Primary School this year had five portable classrooms. The school has a capacity of 774 students but housed 913 this school year.
There are eight portables at Paine Intermediate School. The school has a capacity of 785 students but housed 941.
The two Paine schools housed 1,812 students this school year despite a two-school capacity of 1,559.
The board of education has been working on plans for two new elementary schools in Trussville that would solve overcrowding issues
