Projected Utilization • • • • Based on calculated capacity and enrollment projections Phasing out Culinary Arts and moving three schools into Weaver removes approximately 600 seats from the overall capacity and redistributes seats amongst zones; therefore, zone 1 utilization is projected to improve in 2019-20 Note that projected very low utilization of Bulkeley and Hartford Public High Schools brings zones 3 and 4 overall projected utilization down by 4-6 percentage points Utilization is projected to continue to decline due to projected declining enrollments Improve quality seats and maximize resources and opportunities for 11
