Bossier City, La (KMSS) — Over the past 8 years The Bossier Parish School System has increased its’ student population growth from 18,954 to 22,038.
This comes after the system was named one of the top districts in the State of Louisiana for academic performance just last week.
"If you look back over the numbers in 2003 compared to 2013, we've grown by more than 3000 students this year. We have broken all enrollment records with more than 22,000 students," said Sonja Bailes.
School officials credit the growth to new expansion projects that are taking place across the school system.
