New 10-day school counts released by the Manatee County School District Tuesday afternoon reveal the school district welcomed 1,200 new students to local schools, or a 2.5% increase, from the previous school year.
Collectively, Manatee County houses 47,153 students. Elementary schools increased by 375 additional students, middle schools increased by 201 students, high schools jumped 602 students and charter schools increased enrollment by 147 students.
For Superintendent Rick Mills, the boost means the district is taking another step in a positive direction.
“Our student counts are significantly up in schools,” Mills said in a press release. “Our student population continues to show steady and healthy growth; it’s a positive sign for our district and community.”
