Clearview Public Schools shared their first week enrollments and projections are higher than expected.
Student enrollments increased by 27 students (or over one per cent) from the spring projections to a current enrollment of 2,362 students.
“We anticipated being consistent with last year’s enrollments,” shared Superintendent Peter Barron. “Having higher enrollments is great news, as more students will mean our programming and student supports can increase further in our schools. Additional students provides for more in resources to ensure our students succeed.”
One of the largest increases observed was in the school division’s Kindergarten and Start Right programs (pre-kindergarten).
In the spring, Clearview projected 167 students based on last year’s enrollments. Clearview is now expecting 202 students for early learning, which represents an increase of 21 per cent.
The school division’s Start Right program is designed for all children ages 3 – 5. Students can also receive additional supports before beginning Kindergarten.
“The community and division staff are working well together to support our Start Right program,” explained Superintendent Barron. “The earlier we can bring students into Clearview the sooner we can provide supports in areas such as reading and math, in schools where children have fun while learning.”
The other significant increase in expected student enrollments is at Gus Wetter School in Castor.
Gus Wetter School is 12 students higher for a total enrollment of 241 students this year. Much of this increase was the result of parents enrolling students in the local community school after a school closed in Halkirk.
