Willmar Public Schools' enrollment at the same levels as end of last year


WILLMAR -- Willmar Public Schools had 4,128 students enrolled on Sept. 11, according to preliminary enrollment reports.

"We're above where we were last year at the end of the year," Superintendent Jerry Kjergaard said.

But the preliminary enrollment figures indicate enrollment is about 22 students less than at the same time a year ago.

At the end of the last school year, Willmar's enrollment was about 4,000 students.
