Minidoka Schools sees growth in student enrollment

MINIDOKA, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) The Minidoka School District is growing according to a statement released Tuesday by the school's superintendent Kenneth W. Cox.

Cox said the student enrollment increased by two percent when 60 more students started attending classes this year. That means the district has more than 4,300 students enrolled.

"While this is not earth shattering, we are in the process of adding an additional part-time kindergarten teacher at Rupert Elementary and another full-time teacher (if we can find one) at Heyburn Elementary," said Cox.

School board members will hold a town hall meeting discussing the future of the district and growth.

"Some of the ideas considered were: adding classrooms to some elementary schools and West Minico Middle School, improved security at our middle school entrances, perhaps a new ag building (or two) at Minico, as well as the long awaited parking and drop-off changes at Acequia Elementary," he said.

The first meeting will be on Sept. 24 at 6:30 p.m. at the District Service Center 310 10th St. in Rupert .

It would be followed additional meetings on Oct. 3 and Dec. 3 at the same time and place.
