At yesterday’s Campbell County School District meeting, trustees received information on school enrollment numbers.
“From the first day enrollment, we are currently down about 40 students. So we know that we have had some kids that have transferred out to other schools now. But overall we are looking pretty good with enrollment and again we are continuing to grow as a district.”--- Associate Superintendent Of Instruction Dr. Boyd Brown
Brown said this year's numbers show a count of 8753 students, up slightly from 8726 from last year’s first day enrollment.
“We were somewhat concerned about numbers at the Junior Highs. We were over a thousand students for quite a while at Sage Valley.”
Brown said that as of Monday they got below one thousand students, to 993 students at Sage Valley. Brown said overall growth continues throughout the district.
"Elementary Schools again were continuing to grow, and then at the secondary level we are growing. And at least last time I ran the numbers, we were growing a little bit faster at the secondary level than at the elementary level which is different for us.”
Brown also noted that numbers for kindergarteners have come in slightly lower than during the registration period.
“At one point we had over 900 kindergarten students registered this year and currently we have only 887 kindergarteners registered so we are not quite at 900 right now.”
