COAHOMA — Enrollment at Coahoma public schools is pretty much where officials expected it to be — and that's good news.
Coahoma ISD trustees will hear the latest enrollment news for the district when they hold their monthly meeting at 7:30 p.m. tonight in the administration board room.
“There's not a whole lot to this meeting,” Superintendent Randy Brown said. “It's probably the last board meeting of the year and it's a fairly light agenda.”
Highlighting the routine agenda will be an enrollment report that will indicate that a drastic drop in enrollment suffered during the 2009-2010 school year may have just been a one-year bump in the road.
Enrollment has increased steadily since the start of the current school year and stood at 779 students as of Nov. 30, an increase of six students from the same reporting period last year, Brown said.
While those numbers may seem static, they are welcome news to Brown, who saw district enrollment plummet by about 100 students last school year.
