School enrollment remains steady, district nears 5,000 mark for students


BEMIDJI—Attendance at Bemidji Area Schools is similar to last year but still trending upward, according to figures provided by school district staff.

Superintendent Jim Hess reported that 4,993 students were enrolled in the school district's "mainline" programs as of Thursday, meaning that students in early intervention centers and other specialized programs had yet to be tallied.

That number is preliminary, Hess and other district staff stressed. School districts record formal attendance numbers—which are later used to determine state funding—on Oct. 1, once the student population has settled.
