USD 460 Enrollment took place last week and a temporary headcount has been established.
According to Superintendent Paul Becker, there have been some fluctuations in enrollment numbers.
“Hesston High School is lower by 19 students from last's year 270. Total is head-count is 831, with student Full Time Equivalency at 799, down from 817.8,” he said.
Becker said while the number is lower, there are children that have yet to be factored in.
“The 799 number will be higher because IEP for 3,4, and 5 year olds are not figured in. As of now, I'd say that the Full Time Equivalency will be around 803, at least for now,” he said.
Becker said the district could be facing decreased funding due to enrollment and weightings, but the impact remains unknown until the official headcount is submitted in September.
“Overall, the weightings, such as at-risk, will negatively affect the budget, as there are not as many students who fall under the weightings as last year. It is too early to know the total impact right now,” he said.
