Falling enrollment will cost schools $1M

-A A +A

Fewer students than expected means less money for Grayson schools, resulting in a budget shortfall. A drop in enrollment also could affect the county’s VHSL ranking for sports.

INDEPENDENCE – Falling enrollment in Grayson County could cause a more than $1 million school budget shortfall if things don’t improve before the end of the year.

School Division Superintendent Kevin Chalfant told the Grayson School Board last week that, although things looked “pretty dire” at the beginning of the school year, enrollment has since come up a little.

The division started the year with only 1,693 students enrolled, but as of the latest numbers that had risen to 1,719.
