Get-in-school campaign works!

Numbers show a campaign to make sure Dougherty County students showed up for the first day of school worked.

Monday's attendance was up by more than one thousand over the first day of school last year.

School officials say they're pleased, but caution ,these are just preliminary numbers:  13,473 students attended class Monday.

That number grew Tuesday to 14,465.  School officials say they won't know how good the numbers truly are until October when they take their official count.

The system estimates they'll have around 16-thousand students enrolled this school year.
