College Community Schools announced Monday that it plans to suspend its K-8 Prairie Summer Camp for one year.

The district attributes their decision to declining enrollment in summer programs over the past 8 years, from 1,000 students in 2004 to 435 in 2013.

The district said it will use the one-year suspension to review programming needs and options. It will form a committee to review summer programming needs. The committee will look at a variety of factors when considering programming needs for kids and options for the future.

The district says the suspension will not impact high school summer programming.
