Jackson County students will return to the classroom on Thursday. The new school year began Monday for Jefferson City Schools.
For the 2011-2012 school year, county school superintendent Shannon Adams foresees a minimal increase in the student populations.
“We don’t anticipate any great growth, obviously, because practically nobody is moving into the community,” said Shannon Adams, superintendent of the Jackson County School System. “We might grow a little bit, but we don’t anticipate it being much.”
The Jackson County School System is slated to start the new school year with an estimated 7,200 students — about the same number of children enrolled in the district at the end of last school year, according to Adams.
The Jefferson City School System had 2,759 students for the first day of class. The district ended the previous school year with 2,760 students.
“More times than not, the enrollment goes up over the first 10 days of school,” superintendent John Jackson said. “I anticipate the 10th day enrollment to be approximately 2,800.”
