The Johnson County School District One Board of Trustees held their second meeting for September in Kaycee Monday night, and one topic of discussion was student enrollment numbers at the district's schools.
The district, according to Superintendent Dr. Rod Kessler, doesn't compile enrollment numbers until after the ten-day “drop” period from the first day of school, as numbers seem to be more accurate. This year's “drop” day was September 14th, he said.
The report compared students enrolled at the schools on the last day of school last spring, and those enrolled on September 14th.
Kessler explains more about the numbers and their significance.
Meadowlark Elementary had 361 students last spring, and 379 on September 14th.
Clear Creek Middle School had 244 in the spring and 241 on September 14th.
Clear Creek Elementary had 156 last spring and 169 this September.
Buffalo High School had 337 last spring and 353 September 14th.
Kaycee School had 165 in the spring and was at 147 in September.
District-wide, the schools saw an overall increase of 26 students over the end of the 2011-2012 school year.
