Brandywine has a sharp
increase in enrollment

Brandywine School district has about 300 more students this academic year than last, according to preliminary figures provided to Delaforum by information officer Alexis Andrianopoulos. That is the highest enrollment since the 2004-05 school year and is about 100 more students than were on the rolls a decade ago. This is the third consecutive year in which the district has seen an enrollment increase. While the 'official' headcount on which state support is based is not taken until Sept. 30, she said that the current total is 10,663, up from 10,366 last year and significantly higher than the 10,413 projected in the district's preliminary budget approved by the school board in July. She also said the district has recalled 11 of the 23 teachers laid off at the end of the past academic year.
