Enrollment numbers were a little late in coming from Manhattan/Ogden USD 383 the first day of school, with all the construction projects occupying much of Associate Superintendent Bob Seymour’s time. But Seymour had those numbers for KMAN this (Thursday) morning. The number is up 171 students from last year, with 5875 this year compared to 5704 last year in grades K-12. Seymour explains that is for the “bricks and mortars buildings,” meaning no virtual, pre-school, or pre-school special education students. He adds adjustments will continue to be made.
Riley County USD 378’s enrollment numbers are up for the year. However, until the first official count is made on September 20th, Superintendent Brad Starnes says those numbers aren’t set in stone. USD 378 has gained around 15 students from last years numbers so far in enrollment this year.
And Blue Valley/Randolph USD 384’s enrollment is down a bit this year. The number is down four students from last year’s number, but Superintendent Brady Burton says that number should rise to the same levels by the end of September.
Wamego’s USD 320 reported first day numbers of 1,433 and Rock Creek’s USD 323 reported 897.
