The good news is: There are more students.
The bad news is: There are more students.
Enrollment of 12 middle school and 67 high school students above and beyond district projections, has brought about $210,000 more in state funding to Bainbridge schools.
But it has also crowded some classrooms with as many as 34 students, when the district tries to keep that number at 29 or fewer.
We are close to a percentage point over what we predicted, said Ken Crawford, superintendent of Bainbridge schools.
