DD2 at 24,400 students…so far

  • Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Dorchester District Two Superintendent Joe Pye told school board members Monday that opening day went better than ever in spite of the larger than expected influx of new students at some schools. The district is expecting new mobile units for Knightsville Elementary, which had 142 new students opening day.
District-wide, said Pye, there have been, to date, approximately 600 new students about 100 more than projected. Pye expects there will be more new students between now and Labor Day, he said. The district has hired several new teachers.
