Wood County Schools saw a decrease of 136 students between this time last year and now.
Assistant Superintendent Sue Woodward says that's partly due to class size. Classes coming in are smaller than ones graduating.
But when the state plans funding for next year, this decrease in enrollment means less money for the school system.
"And our preliminary numbers with our decrease in enrollment would say that 7-9 positions would have to be cut for next year. Some of those can be absorbed by combining small classes that are at some schools this year or programs that aren't up to full capacity and through attrition, retirement, etc," says Woodward.
Woodward adds there will be a realignment to absorb those 7 to 9 positions throughout the school system.
