School district 60 enrollments see little changes this year

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Early indications suggest this year’s School District 60 enrolment will be relatively unchanged.

Superintendent Dave Sloan says in the last school year it was 5,080 students, and as of yesterday afternoon this year’s total was 5,083.

He says while small, for the most part, the changes seem to vary by location.

When it comes to provincial funding Mr. Sloan sees this year’s enrolment as likely authoring “A pretty neutral story”.

For those new to the area, the Peace River North School District has 21 schools, and in addition to Fort St. John, it also serves the surrounding communities of Taylor, Hudson’s Hope, Prespatou, Buick, and Wonowon.
