There is good news again for the Prairie du Chien School District regarding open enrollment for this school year.

District Administrator Robert Smudde said open enrollment into the district this year is 85 students. Open enrollment out of the district is 31 students. So, there is a net gain this year of 54 students.

“We gain $610,000 in new revenue to the district, which is higher than last year’s revenue of $489,999 by $120,001,” said Smudde. “This benefits our students greatly by giving extra revenue to the district for staffing and innovative programming.”

Smudde also said the district is seeing a gain of new open enrollment applications and students attending this year of 17 more than last year.

“This shows that people are being more interested in what we are doing here in Prairie du Chien,” said Smudde. “It certainly shows that our message is getting out and, hopefully, as we continue to tell our story to the rest of the area, more students will want to come to our wonderful school.”

The Prairie du Chien School Board and administrators at the school district continually look for new and better ways to market all the Prairie du Chien School District has to offer.
