Centreville sees higher than expected enrollment

Enrollment for the 2017-18 academic year is higher than expected at Centreville Public Schools, the district’s board of education learned Monday.

First-year superintendent Stephanie Lemmer said the count is 810 students, 40 more than projected.

Lemmer said as a result, she recommended hiring additional sixth-grade and kindergarten teachers, a junior/senior high reading interventionist, and fill part-time librarian, physical education and activity helper positions.

Lemmer also advised filling a human resources/executive assistant position.

With the additional revenue as a result of the increase in students, the cost to fill the staffing positions will take just $94,000 from the district’s fund balance rather than $165,000.
