School Enrollment and Participation Numbers Up in Campbell County
With two school years in the books since the split up of Campbell County High School, average attendance and activity participation have continued to increase.
Superintendent Alex Ayers broke down the numbers for the Campbell County School District Board of Trustees at Tuesday night’s meeting.
In the 2015-16 school year, two years before Thunder Basin High School existed, the average daily attendance at Campbell County High School was 90.24 percent of enrolled students. Fast forward to the just completed 2018-19 school year, attendance was up to 93.07 percent at CCHS and 92.54 percent at TBHS.
In addition to the increased enrollment, the number of students participating in extracurricular activities has also increased.
Taking a look at all activities sanctioned by the Wyoming High School Activities Association, participation increased 31.63 percent between 2016-17 and the 2018-19 school years.
Ayers also dug down deeper to measure the changes in what are called cut sports, such as basketball, soccer, volleyball. In that same time period, participation in those sports also increased by 45.52 percent.
