Bedford schools look to promote district

The Bedford Public school board is discussing plans to advertise the school district more aggressively to help raise declining enrollment.

While official enrollment numbers will not be available until November, early estimates show enrollment has dropped by about 30 students this year.

Board member Dale Barton suggested advertising in Toledo to draw more people to Bedford Township based on the quality of its schools.

Monroe County's population has increased 6.7 percent since 2000, show 2006 estimates from the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments.

Much of that gain has occurred in Bedford Township, which has added 2,814 residents since the 2000 U.S. Census put the population at 28,606.

Bedford Township Clerk Bob Schockman said the township board has not thought of advertising and said he doesn't think it's necessary.
