Enrollment at area schools close to last year’s numbers

By Gary Lloyd

JEFFERSON COUNTY — How many students go to area schools?

Look no further than here.

Trussville City Schools and Jefferson County Schools this week released their most up-to-date enrollment numbers for the 2014-2015 school year. Those numbers compared to the average daily membership numbers from the 2013-2014 school year show not a lot of change.

“These Paws Need Solid Walls” became a slogan for Trussville City Schools during the campaigning process for two new elementary schools. On Feb. 25, the “need” in the slogan became “will get.”
