Valdosta City School District's hits enrollment capacity

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Classes are overflowing with kids at some schools in Valdosta.

The Valdosta City School District's enrollment is up by more than 200 kids this year according to Superintendent William Cason.

Cason said that higher enrollment is a great thing because it presents opportunities for growth.

The district will be looking to hire new teachers, assistant principals and add mobile units to some schools who have reached capacity.

Cason believes the spike comes from new programs that are being offered such as Trailblazers and the STEM Academy.

"It's a good problem to have," said Williams. "We want more people to want to come to our school district, we want more parents to choose Valdosta City Schools."

Williams said they will focus on Valdosta Middle School first, installing a mobile unit there.
