The number of students in Carbon School District is up considerably this year.

That is what was reported to the Carbon Board of Education on Oct. 10 during their regular monthly meeting.

"As we took in the numbers for the Oct. 1 report we noted that our schools have more students than last year," stated Superintendent Steve Carlsen.

The Oct. 1 report each year is an official and very important report that the state uses for funding purposes (Weighted pupil unit) for public school districts. Overall numbers show 123 more students than last year.

The report that Carlsen handed to the board shows that all schools increased in student numbers except Wellington Elementary which went down by 22 students.

The highest growth in the elementary schools took place at Castle Heights Elementary in northeast Price. Their numbers increased by basically what is over one classroom of students or 30 pupils.

Carbon High showed a big growth with 42 more students than the district reported in the 2011-12 school year.

The other schools increases included Bruin Point with 13, Creek View Elementary with 14, Sally Mauro Elementary with 15, Castle Valley Center with 10, Helper Junior High with five, Mont Harmon Junior High with nine and the Lighthouse High School with seven.

The numbers reflected in the report does not count those in pre-school classes at Bruin Point, Creekview Elementary and the Castle Valley Center.
