Ind. schools hold first 'count day'

South Bend, Ind. Indiana schools are getting a better idea of how much funding will be coming their way, the first count day was Friday.

When corporations lose students, it means they will also lose some of the money coming to them from the state.

PHM's enrollment was pretty flat, they're down 23 students compared to last year.

They are serving 778 non-resident students at their schools.

School City of Mishawaka lost 56 students.

South Bend lost around 400.

“The money follows the child,” explained Dr. Carole Schmidt, Superintendent of SBCSC. “It's a money issue. However i want to point out with prelim count we are not down as far as we have been in past year. We're not down as far as what we used for budget assumption. So that’s a bit of good news.”

Another count day will take place in February.
