CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Enrollment at the Franklin County Career and Technology Center is historically low at 705 this year, but Principal Michele Orner told the Joint Operating Committee that the center will meet or exceed its 2008-09 goal of 835 students.
Projected enrollment for next year is 806, Orner told the committee Thursday. At this point, the Chambersburg, Shippensburg, Tuscarora, Greencastle-Antrim and Fannett-Metal school districts all show increased attendance for next year. Waynesboro's enrollment is down one student to 130, according to her figures.
Chambersburg, the district which sends the most students to the center, will have 352 there next year, up from 296 now, Orner said. Greencastle-Antrim expects to be up 26 to 79 students and Fannett-Metal, the smallest district, would nearly double, from 10 to 18.
Orner said the figures do not include a possible 37 tuition students that will be coming from Gettysburg High School in Adams County.
