Growth brings challenges, admins say
Frenship Independent School District and Lubbock-Cooper ISD already have another year of massive growth in the first week of school.
Lubbock ISD saw a slight dip in enrollment in the first week, but expects an increase after Labor Day.
Andy Penney, director of public information for Frenship, said the district had 9,130 students as of Thursday, the fourth day of school. That’s up from 8,768 students on day four a year ago, he said, a gain of 362 students.
“We anticipate by the time it really peaks out, it’ll be about 9,200,” Penney said.
