Sheridan County School District 1 enrollment hit a new high this month.

At the school board meeting Tuesday night, School Superintendent Marty Kobza said enrollment is technically the highest it's been all year.

In an interview with Sheridan Media after the meeting, Kobza said enrollment on Aug. 31, the start of the school year, was 936, and on May 9, the number was a little over 940. School District 1 operates the schools in Big Horn, Ranchester and Dayton.

Kobza said WY-TOPP testing is complete for the most part.

In other action, trustees accepted the preliminary budget for the fiscal year that starts on July 1. The document was presented by the district's Business Manager Jeremy Smith.

The budget calls for expenditures in the coming year of a little more than $15 million.

Trustees also made a change in the district's language arts requirement for graduation. The change will allow students to substitute college level courses in place of the current requirement of English 3 and 4.
