OKC sees more students on first day than last year
OKLAHOMA CITY – The numbers are in. Oklahoma City Public School officials said more students attended the first day of school this year than last year.
School officials said 78.6 percent of students showed up for the first day.
That is a 2-percent increase over last year but that still means about one in five students didn’t go on the first day.
Some schools reported a huge increase over past years.
Eugene Field, Greystone, Bodine, and Telstar elementary schools saw a boost in First-Day enrollment ranging from 10 to 15 percent.
