Enrolment better than expected
Enrolment looks to be a little better than last spring’s projections in the North Okanagan Shuswap School District but still down approximately 200 students from last school year.
“It looks like we’re up a little bit from projections with elementary up around 50 students and secondary up 17,” said Superintendant Glenn Borthistle at the first regular meeting for the North Okanagan Shuswap Board of Education Tuesday.
He noted these numbers are still very preliminary and the district will have a better idea on the ministry’s enrolment “snapshot” day on Sept. 30.
“But, it looks like we’re sitting at about 5,800 and last year we were right around 6,000 students.”
