Hallsville ISD has biggest area enrollment gain
Longview, TX — Student enrollment at most area school districts remained relatively flat with some moderate increases. However, at Hallsville ISD, that was far from the case.
Hallsville saw an increase of 145 students this year from one year ago, said district spokeswoman Carol Greer. Longview’s Spring Hill ISD had the second-highest enrollment increase among Longview-area schools with 44 more students enrolled compared with a year ago.
About 90 students of Hallsville’s 145-student increase came from out-of-district transfers, which the district allowed for the first time this school year. With a cost of $800 per student (or $1,200 per family) and state revenue of $5,500 per student, each transfer generates about $6,300 for the school district.
