Utah schools got 13,000 new kids this school year

More than 13,000 additional students entered Utah classrooms this school year, busting projections and straining school budgets. Utah’s public-school enrollment grew by 2.3 percent to 576,335 students between the falls of 2009 and 2010 and continued to become more diverse, according to data recently released by the State Office of Education. And Utah schools aren’t done growing. The enrollment increases are expected to continue, with 14,754 new students projected for next school year and an additional 17,423 students projected for 2012.
