The West Central Area School Board heard some good news at their meeting last Wednesday. According to figures released by the administration, total enrollment, on the first day of school, was 840 students, including 59 in preschool. Enrollment at WCA North Elementary was 221. Enrollment at South was 144. Enrollment at the Middle School, grades five through eight, totaled 221 and enrollment at the Secondary School was 254. The largest classes are grades four and eleven  with 68 students each.

“This is up 25 students from the end of school last year and 17 more than we anticipated when we budgeted,” said superintendent Paul Brownlow, adding that Palmer Bus Service has added a route but they are  having trouble finding enough drivers.
