TUCSON, Ariz. -- The troubled Tucson Unified School District may spend $32,000 to study why more students aren't enrolling in its schools year after year.

The Arizona Daily Star reports the district's governing board next week will consider approving the study that would assess and project student enrollment in the district for the next decade.

Tucson Superintendent H.T. Sanchez said the study is needed to develop a master plan.

In recent years, enrollment in the Tucson school district has been dropping by about 1,500 students annually.

The governing board recently voted to spend $300,000 on a public relations campaign to improve its image amid budget cuts.

The district also faced national criticism and was the subject of a PBS documentary after it recently ended its Mexican American Studies program.
