Joan Townley, of Western Suffolk BOCES, presented the study’s results to more than 20 residents.

Though private school enrollment has declined by 10.9 percent on Long Island and by 9.8 percent in Nassau County since 2005, in the West Hempstead district it has remained stable at 38.9 percent.

“Eagle Avenue, from my point of view, appears to be the big question,” Hogan said. “We will need the committee to come back together for discussion. We all have some thinking to do.”

The entire demographic study can be found on the district’s website. The Space Utilization Committee will meet on Aug. 28 to tour the Chestnut Street School at 7:30 p.m., followed by the Eagle Avenue School at 8 p.m. The tour is open to the public.
