WILLIAMSPORT To some of their peers, having sex and getting pregnant is no big deal, several Williamsport High School students said Wednesday. "Pregnancy is something to be proud of nowadays. You see people walk down the halls, and it's like, 'I'm pregnant.' Wow, good," Emily Crilly, 17, said after track practice at the high school. Attitudes about sexual activity and a lack of supervision could be behind the county's high teen pregnancy rate, educators said. Washington County Health Officer William Christoffel told the County Commissioners on Tuesday that 15 pregnant girls attended the county's fourth-largest high school at the beginning of the school year, but dropout prevention specialist Lee Brooks disputed that number Wednesday.

The girl, who struggled with attendance problems at her home school, is one of the faces of the county's successful efforts to help at-risk students, Moore said. "And, I look forward to seeing her graduate in June," Moore told the Board of Education during a presentation Tuesday about alternative programs.

karenh@herald-mail.com Working for minimum wage, Patricia McDonnell realized her education had not gone far enough. So when an Evening High School staff member called her, McDonnell knew it was time to go back. "Working there for $5.15 an hour ... as soon as I got that job and I was starting to hate making that kind of money, Ms. Carden called," McDonnell said. McDonnell and 12 of her classmates celebrated their graduation Thursday night from Evening High School at Washington County Technical High School.

scottb@herald-mail.com Twenty employees, excluding administrators, made more than $10,000 in addition to their base salaries during the fiscal year that ended June 30 because they took on extra duties, according to public documents. Of the 20 employees, 18 are teachers, one is a guidance counselor and one is a special education specialist, according to the documents. A high school teacher, for example, who also teaches summer school or at the Evening High School will be paid extra for that work, school system spokeswoman Carol Mowen said.

scottb@herald-mail.com Not all students attended school on Wednesday, the first day of the new school year, but Washington County Public Schools officials say when all the students are in class, the total enrollment is expected to top 20,000. Enrollment last year was 19,884, according to school system documents. Schools Superintendent Elizabeth Morgan said the enrollment increase bodes well for the future of Washington County and the school system. The Washington County Board of Education may need to look at creative ways to deal with increased enrollment in some of the schools, Morgan said.
