DALEVILLE CITY, Ala. (WDHN) — Class is back in session for Daleville City Schools and enrollment numbers have skyrocketed.
Daleville was the latest school system that returned on August 24th.
While the first day was smooth, Superintendent Lisa Stamps told WDHN how enrollment numbers compared to last year.
“Our numbers are really big at Windham and the middle school, so we’re really expecting more students each day and our enrollment is over 1100 and we are higher than we were last year,” Stamps said.
However, that came with some road blocks.
Back in February, the school planned renovations for Daleville Middle School.
“Our middle school renovation has been our biggest challenge this summer because of the time it’s just been hard to get as massive of a project that we’ve done completed in a short amount of time.”
Which explained their delay to the school year. Now, with new ceiling lights, fresh paint, upgraded classrooms, doors and more..
The Daleville Middle School is fully renovated.
“I just foresee a lot of positive changes,” Stamps said.
Changes that also allow parents to feel comfortable with their children going to school.
“Our parents trust that we’re gonna take care of their students and that we are trying to put in every measure to keep their students safe from the pandemic.”
Stamps’ challenged her staff to be great this year as they hope for a full one.
