First day enrollment was down by 101 students from last year at Barrow County Schools.
Matt Thompson prepared the official numbers for the Barrow County Board of Education’s August meeting, but the report was not discussed.
The first day of school brought in 12,682 students this year. Drops in first day enrollment were found in all school levels with the highest drop being at elementary schools.
Dr. Ken Greene said he is unsure of the reason for the drop. The system will measure enrollment again on Thursday and Greene hopes this will provide some clarification.
