MONROE, Ohio - Monroe schools are planning to turn away 80 children hoping to attend classes in the district.

Officials with Monroe Schools say there is not enough room on class rosters for the students who want to take advantage of the district's open enrollment policy.

Superintendent Phil Cagwin said Friday that families can be put on a waiting list but as of June 21 all of his classes are at capacity.

In order to bring in additional students, Cagwin said the district would have to hire more teachers. However, the Monroe School District is facing a $3 million deficit.
