The District 65 school board Tuesday is scheduled to consider a plan to limit kindergarten enrollment at three schools this fall as a way to deal with a surge in the school-age population in some neighborhoods.

The plan would divert some students away from Dewey, Lincolnwood and Willard schools and send them to one of the district’s two magnet schools or a nearby neighborhood school instead.

District officials say as many as 28 kindergarten children could have to change schools, unless the district also decides to raise class sizes.

The district is trying to avoid redrawing school boundaries or relocating programs to deal with the population increase.

Kindergarten registration in the district is scheduled to start next week.

The board meets at 7:30 p.m. at the Hill Education Center, 1500 McDaniel Ave.
