The trend of declining enrollment in Warren County School District continues.
The official enrollment figure for the district will not be finalized until Oct. 1, but as of Thursday, Sept. 6, enrollment was 4,705. By Tuesday's tenth-day count, the total had dropped another 17 to 4,688.
That is 76 less than the official October enrollment in 2011, and 238 less than the official figure for 2010.
The changes represent a 1.6 percent drop over the last year and 4.8 percent over two years.
