A good start
In the other bit of business Monday, Schools Superintendent Dave Pruis said
in his comments to the board all Duneland schools are falling in line with
their duties these opening days of the 2013-14 school year.
“Classrooms are full and school is going on. The kids are happy and the
teachers are doing their job. The hallways are empty. It has been very
positive. We’re off to a good start,” Pruis said.
School officials counted a district-wide attendance of 5,851 students on the
first day which is about 40 less than last September’s average daily
membership (ADM) number submitted to the state.
Despite the numbers being down, Pruis said it seems like there are more
students this year from his visit to the schools.
Transportation Director Jim Bloomfield remarked that bus ridership is “as
full as it has ever been” which may indicate a larger proportion of children
are riding the bus rather than using other means of transportation.
Count day for Duneland’s ADM, which is used for the state’s funding formula,
will be on Friday, Sept. 13.
