Enrollment may be on its way back up
Enrollment in Independent School District 196 schools may be on the way up again. After seven years of declines, the district's official enrollment for the 2010-11 school year is up by four students over last year. That's hardly enough for a good study group, but for district administrators it's better than what they've been seeing.
"The last six years we've been going down about 200 students a year, so we're excited," said Kim Reis, the district's student information supervisor.
