Enrollment in the Utica Shale Academy is increasing, members of the governing board of the Jefferson County Educational Service Center board learned Wednesday.
Tony Delboccio, principal of the Salineville campus, said enrollment is up at the academy’s locations in Salineville and Columbiana.
“It’s good,” he said. “There are a a couple of days we are packed in there like sardines, but it’s a good thing.”
Delboccio reported the enrollment in the schools is up to 49 students at the Salineville campus and 14 at the Columbiana campus.
He said the school now is providing the students with lunches.
“They were spending $20 at the vending machines and it was taking away from instruction time,” Delboccio said.
He also told the board there is more than $55,000 worth of rollover funds that can be used for the new school year.Click here to read more.
