With just a few days into the start of a new school year, the Mansfield School District has announced that its student population is up significantly. Enrollment numbers indicate that the district has added approximately 50 students. “We’re still enrolling students,” added Superintendent Robert Ross. “We ended the year with 745 students and as of Monday we had 796.”

Of course the growth is a welcomed site for the district. Some of the increase in student population stems from neighboring Hartford’s school closure. Board members met in a special meeting last week and approved a new bus line that would provide transportation for students who live in or around Hartford. That move has helped make the transition easier for some parents and students.
