Superintendent Leonard McCoy say they've seen a slight increase in enrollment overall -- but the number of Hispanic students in the school system has dipped.

McCoy explains, "Our Hispanic enrollment is down, I believe 141 students, from where it was at a similar time in the school last year. Our overall enrollment is up about 145 students."

McCoy says numbers may shift in the next few months, as some students leave and others start late.

He says all children are entitled to public education regardless of their color, religion, or even legal status.

    Mr. McCoy, I disagree all people, despite their "legal status" are entitled to attend public schools free. If a person is in this country illegally they are not entitled to one thing.
