38 Conclusion of the Meitler Study for St. Mary’s School RECOMMENDATION 1. St. Mary School should give immediate consideration to adopting a multi-age model of instruction. If this approach does not achieve viability, then consideration should be given for St. Mary School to transition students to Danville Catholic schools. Strategies 1.1 The principal should research the multi-age model and begin a process to educate parents and teachers about the model and how a transition to the multi- age model will occur. 1.2 The principal and pastor should keep themselves well informed through planned communication with the Danville principals and pastors about any changes in grade structure or location.

39 Rationale K to 8 enrollment was 90 in with an average class size of 10. Grades 5 & 6 operated as one multi-age class, as did grades 7 and 8. Some teachers find the multi-age classroom a challenge. St. Mary School operated at 49% capacity in Catholic student enrollment declined from 70% in to 60% in St. Mary School is located eight miles south of [Danville] on a main route. St. Mary Parish contributes the equivalent of 77% of ordinary income to support its school ($262,571) and Schlarman High School ($5,838). The table on page 16 indicates that St. Mary Parish experienced declines in registered parish households, religious education enrollment, First Communions & confirmations since Capital repairs within the next five years are projected to cost $202,000. An additional $50,000 is estimated for the following six to ten years.
