Medford School District's rising enrollment is on the agenda when the school board meets tonight.

The meeting is at 7 p.m. in the commons at North Medford High School, 1900 N. Keene Way Drive. It's open to the public.

The district hired a handful of new teachers this year to deal with an estimated 650 new students, bringing the district's total to about 12,300.

Statistics the board will view tonight show that class sizes remain above their historical level.

The board also launches its annual budget-setting process tonight with a meeting that begins at 5:15 p.m. That meeting is also at the North Medford High School commons and also is open to the public.
