According to a news release, this request is a $2.1 million, or 1.47 percent over the current adopted budget and directly reflects enrollment growth.

About 359 new students are projected to enroll in the next school year, and Moran is proposing adding 27 new teachers and other student services staff to accommodate the growth.
