Sherman Elementary School in Golden Hill will become the district’s 19th school to go on a year-round multitrack schedule, beginning in July. The San Diego city schools Board of Education voted Tuesday to put Sherman on the system, under which three groups of students attend school at any one time while a fourth group is on a three-week vacation.
The move allows a campus to accommodate one-fourth more students without more crowding of playgrounds, cafeterias and classrooms. Sherman has 1,300 students this year, more than its 1,110-student capacity. The school, home to an overwhelmingly Latino population, has shown some of the largest enrollment increases in the past years among the district’s 107 elementary schools.
