"One way to increase revenue is open enrollment."

That was one of the messages Norwalk City Schools Superintendent Dennis Doughty recently gave the school board -- amid talk of inevitable cuts if a proposed emergency operating levy fails in May.

Norwalk schools gains $5,800 per student who comes into the district for open enrollment. If a student leaves, the school system loses that same amount.

Currently, Norwalk accepts open-enrollment students from "continuous" or adjoining school districts: Edison, Monroeville, South Central and Western Reserve.
