The Indiana Department of Education does an annual student count in schools and their findings are used to determine state funding. When the average daily membership count took place at North Judson-San Pierre on Friday, September 15th, the ADM count was 1,031 students. Superintendent Dr. Annette Zupin said that for the first time in about 10 years, the school corporation saw an increase in their enrollment figures.
The school corporation had six more students enrolled than last year. Dr. Zupin stated that even though six more students may not seem significant, it points to progress and indicates that they are seeing some stability.
Vice President of the board, Derrick Staulbaum, mentioned that the additional students will result in approximately $42,000 more in state funding.
