NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Educators say the Natchez-Adams School District’s student enrollment is down nearly 200 students from what it was last year.

But administrators believe many of those students will show up soon.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1AjiXPp ) enrollment numbers have been low - but climbing - since school began Monday.

On the first day, only 2,734 students reported for classes compared to 3,162 students who showed up for the first day last year - a 428 student difference.

Thursday, enrollment was 3,382, down 183 students from last year.

Superintendent Frederick Hill says enrollment fluctuations are normal at the start of a school year, and the official recording of district enrollment isn’t required by the state for several months. Hill said the numbers were still a bit alarming.
