Enrollment up at Forsyth schools

Forsyth County Schools has posted record enrollment this fall, with 44,100 students in classes this week, up from 42,687 at the end of the 2014-15 school year. School spokeswoman Jennifer Caracciolo said that the district isn’t scrambling, however, because it plans for peak enrollment, not just the number flooding in at the start of an academic year.

Caracciolo said the healthiest growth has happened at south Forsyth campuses, and that trailers have been added at a number of schools.

District officials also said that four of their five high schools are also undergoing growth-related additions and renovations, and that two middle school campuses are seeing the same.
