— Enrollment is down in the Hayden School District, but early numbers are up from what administrators projected.

Superintendent Mike Luppes said Monday that there were 445 children enrolled in preschool through 12th grade, which is 10 more students than projected. Numbers are up at Hayden Valley Elementary School, which is encouraging, Luppes said.

Enrollment overall is down from the 455 students enrolled in district schools last year.

Final enrollment numbers aren’t official until early October, when the district delivers its final head count to the state.

Public school districts receive funding on a per-pupil basis.

Enrollment numbers likely will be one item Luppes addresses with the Hayden School Board during today’s monthly meeting at 7 p.m. at the administrative offices at 495 W. Jefferson Avenue.

The board has a long list of action items, but most are items involving little discussion, such as accrediting each school and approving the high school handbook. All four items are carryovers from the August meeting.

The board also will take action on district goals for this school year.

Before the action items, the board will discuss construction of the vocational building for the district. Hayden’s vocational program is growing, Luppes said.
