by Dolores Hamilton
Enrollment numbers in the Iowa Park CISD continue to climb as 1,813 students attended classes when the new school year started on Monday. This is up 54 from last year’s first day attendance of 1759.
On Tuesday, 10 more students had enrolled bringing the total to 1823. “Normally, from the first day to the end of the week, we gain 12 to 15 additional students,” Superintendent Steve Moody told the Leader. In the past it has not been unusual for student numbers to increase through the Labor Day holiday.
First day enrollment numbers for each of the grades include: 12th grade, 116; 11th grade, 138; 10th grade, 131; 9th grade, 137; 8th grade, 129; 7th grade, 144; 6th grade, 136; 5th grade, 134; 4th grade, 120; 3rd grade, 143; 2nd grade, 144; 1st grade, 137; KG, 127; PK, 76; and EE, 4.
