The number of students enrolled at Bellingham schools surpassed expectations last fall, so the school district is getting more funding.
Bellingham Assistant Superintendent Ron Cowan says the additional funding has allowed the district to increase teaching support at schools with higher class sizes and in some of their special education programs.
Cowan says the district saw a small decrease in enrollment last year.
In further good news, only six students have dropped out of Bellingham schools so far this year.
That’s a big decrease compared to the 60 students who dropped out over the same time last year.
