Two Prince Albert school divisions are reporting an increase in enrollment for the 2015-2016 school year.
The Saskatchewan Rivers School Division’s numbers are higher than projected.
Alan Nunn is the superintendent of schools for the division. He said the division was expecting approximately 8,921 students this year, but the actual number was 8,964.
“So we’re 43 over projection,” said Nunn. “But we also projected higher than last year. So what this means for us is we’re 122 students higher than where we were on September 30 last year, and that’s kind of a banner deal for us.”
Nunn said the SRSD has increased its enrollment by nearly 300 in the last two years. This is a growth they’re not used to seeing.
