I am optimistic about our enrollment numbers for this year. One, it appears we are the only Washington County School that is showing an increase in our certified enrollment. We are showing an increase of 32.95 students to 1778.05. Second, the increase is a good sign before our largest classes begin to leave us. But we are certainly positioned much better to withstand the expected enrollment drop in the next 3 years. The Board has proactively planned and we should be able to handle this without making cuts to programming.


There are many funding streams that the Washington Community School District utilizes to fund education. The total budget for the District is nearly $20 million, but that includes all funds available to us. I think it is important to communicate to our staff and patrons the different funds and their allowable uses as we monitor our enrollment(revenue) and expenses.
