Student count effects limited

A new state initiative requiring school districts to count students twice a year instead of once means those corporations might have to adjust spending twice a year.

A decision to add a second average daily membership count on the second Friday of each February was not aimed at smaller rural corporations, Crothersville Community Schools Superintendent Terry Goodin said.

“It’s really aimed at areas such as Fort Wayne and Indianapolis where there are more charter schools and they are seeing children move quite a bit,” said Goodin, who also is a state representative for District 65.
