Wednesday, Oct. 4 was the official fall student count day in Michigan. Student counts are very important to schools because state revenues are multiplied by the per pupil count. Local superinten­dents provided the unaudited counts for fall 2017. The official counts are expect­ed to be revised, once the state audits for part-time student attendance.

Chesaning Union Schools superinten­dent Mike McGough reported a 2017 fall student count of 1,424; this is down somewhat from the 2016 fall count of 1,452.

Montrose Community Schools super­intendent Dr. Edward Graham said, “We had 1432, which is exactly the same as our count last winter.” It was also up from last fall, which had a 2016 fall count of 1,419.

New Lothrop Public Schools superin­tendent Anthony Berthiuame reported a 2017 fall count of 900, which was four students fewer than fall of 2016.

St. Charles Community Schools superintendent Michael Decker said this fall’s count is 919, which is down from last fall’s count of 957.
