Enrollments up with start of school

Area schools have kicked off the new school year and administrators seem to be very happy with the opening day enrollments. At Silsbee ISD, the enrollment is up approximately 50 students over the start of school last year . Administrators are expecting a few more enrollees. The reason they are smiling is the fact that the district receives approximately $6,000 for each student in attendance. If all the enrolled students stay in class, this could bring approximately $300,000 additional monies to the district.
