The Albia Community School Board met Monday night and reviewed positive numbers from the district’s recent Kindergarten Round-up. Superintendent Kevin Crall reported 78 students identified for enrollment in the fall. “I think the district can comfortably count on four sections next year,” said Crall.
Typically numbers from the spring round-up grow a bit by the beginning of school.
The board also reviewed parent-teacher conference numbers that showed traditionally strong attendance in the lower grades and lesser numbers beginning in seventh grade.
There was 97 percent attendance in pre-school, 114 percent in kindergarten, 119 percent in first, 105 percent in second, 89 percent in third, 79 percent in fourth, 83 percent in fifth and 74 percent in sixth. Attendance from 7th through 12th ranged from 49 percent in seventh to 23 percent in 12th.
Sixty-six seniors were approved for graduation.
