40 More Students Added To Oneonta’s Enrollment

40 More Students Added

To Oneonta’s Enrollment

ONEONTA – The Oneonta City School District’s student population has shown “very modest growth” this year, Superintendent Joseph Yelich told the school board at its meeting last evening.

The current number of OCSD’s students is 1,835, an increase of 40 students from 1,795 students in 2017.

Yelich hailed the news as positive, contrasting it with some neighboring school districts that have suffered 20-25 percent decreases in student enrollment
