When classes opened in Washington County last Thursday, every school in the district saw growth in enrollment. Some were modest, while others were much greater.
According to numbers provided by Chad Willis, director of pupil personnel for the Washington County School District, a total of 101 new students were on the roll for local schools as of Friday.
Willis said North Washington led the way with 47 new students. The school had an enrollment of 471 students last year, and that climbed to 518 at the start of this year.
