Flint School Count Day Brings Mixed Emotions
Student count day was Wednesday and there are mixed emotions on the day, according to ABC-12. For Flint Community Schools, numbers were down but not as low as they have been in the past. Superintendent Linda Thompson says the district lost 776 but it's better than what the numbers normally are:
'"We are under what we normally have which range anywhere to 1,100 -1,600 kids.'" Thompson is viewing this as a positive and hopes the school will make a comeback. Count day is extremely important for schools because the number of students determines how much funding the districts will get from the state.
