Resident enrollment for the last Wednesday of September, an official state headcount day, was 3,986 students in Rolla Public Schools.
The headcount was 3,915 on the last Wednesday of September 2012.
The 71-student increase was reported on a document included in the agenda packet for the Nov. 14 school board meeting. There was no discussion.
The count, conducted on Sept. 25, at all Missouri school districts, will be used to determine state financing of individual school districts, the distribution of fines and forfeitures collected by counties and other funding.
It is also used by districts sending students to other districts, requiring tuition payments.
