School count totals are in, and for most Mid-Michigan districts NBC25 spoke with, the numbers aren TMt good.
Flint Public Schools tell us they dropped from 11,712 (the number they had in February 2010) to 10,123. That TMs a loss of over 1500 kids.
Saginaw Public Schools also took an enrollment hit. School officials say their number went from 8370 last year at this time, to 8,060, a loss of 310 students.
The last student count day was in September 2010. Midland Public Schools say overall they went down 43 students from that date, making their enrollment a total of 9,713.
The only school district NBC25 spoke with Thursday that actually went up in enrollment, was the Tuscola Intermediate School District, where their number jumped up about 40 students.
