For the current school year, district officials originally had projected enrollment would increase by 312 students. However, official enrollment showed an increase of 173 students for the 2016-2017 school year.
Superintendent Jim Simpson previously told the Call that a lack of available housing is the reason official enrollment lagged behind the projected enrollment.
