Enrollments Up in School District 2

Enrollment in Sheridan County School District 2 grew this year by more than 100 students over last year.

Eighth-day enrollment figures were up in all schools in Sheridan with two exceptions, according to a report presented to district trustees on Monday night. Meadowlark Elementary School dropped from 339 in fall 2013 to 335 this year. And Sagebrush Elementary enrollments were down from 361 to 328, 33 fewer students than last year.

Districtwide, enrollment grew from just over 3,300 in 2013 to more than 3,400 this year, a gain of 102 students. Scott Stults, district director of elementary education, told trustees the reason for growth in the district's schools is the kind of education the district provides.

The largest growth was at the new Henry A. Coffeen Elementary School, where 343 students are enrolled, 43 more than last year. Sheridan High School enrollment grew by 42, to 988 students this year. District 2 administers schools in the city of Sheridan and Story Elementary. Enrollment in Story increased by eight students this year.
