School district enrollment topped 5,000 this year, an unexpected occurrence given the economic uncertainty in Delta County. In preparing the fiscal year budget, school district administrators anticipated a drop in enrollment of 100. Instead, the unofficial results for the October result indicate an increase of 32 -- as measured in full-time equivalency, not number of students.

District leadership cautions the numbers will not be finalized until the first week of November.

According to data presented at a recent legislative visit, enrollment in Delta County has not hit the 5,000 mark since 2012-13, when enrollment was pegged at 5,034.

The "official" student count is the basis for state funding of $7,187 for each full-time student.
