Faced with shrinking budgets, area school districts received some good news after the preliminary enrollment counts for the 2011-12 school year.
Each of the three school districts has enrollments slightly higher than what was budgeted for this school year.
Deer Park, which has been in the best budget situation the past couple of years, has a district enrollment of 2,423 full-time equivalent students in September. The count is 67 FTE students above what the school district budgeted for the upcoming school year.
School districts receive about $2,000 a year in state funding for each FTE.
