TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Enrollment continues to grow within the Tippecanoe School Corporation.
Superintendent Scott Hanback said enrollment is up this year by nearly 330 students. That means this is the highest single-year growth in the last 10 years.
Hanback said at the board meeting Wednesday night 70 percent of this year’s growth is at Harrison High School and the schools that feed into it.
He said it’s a sign of the times.
“This community is really thriving, it’s really growing. You know, new jobs, new home sites and that brings families in and that brings children in and children attend schools, so we’re there to help educate those kids,” explained Hanback.
He said the corporation will have another count day in February to dictate how much funding the schools receive from the state. The headcount determines how many employees and programs schools may need to add.
