For the sixth consecutive year, the state of Wyoming is experiencing the largest kindergarten class in its history. According to information released by the Wyoming Department of Education, there are 92,918 students in public schools throughout the state as of October 1, 2013, up from 90,993 a year ago.

The enrollment increase is consistent with an eight-year trend during which the state has seen its total enrollment increase over 7,000 students since the 2005-2006 school year. Wyoming Department of Education Data Governance Coordinator Leslie Zimmerschied says that the increase didn't come as a surprise.

According to statistics complied by the Department of Education, 2013-2014 fall enrollment for Sheridan County District #2 was at 3,318, School District #1 was at 965 and there were 96 students enrolled in School District #3.
