Students in Bedford County head back to school Monday ? some will be heading to the traditional classroom, some for a second year of Early College and some will be joining the school system online.
Fewer students than last year are expected to report ? but that number is yet to be determined. Last year enrollment predictions fell below expectations and that cost the county school budget state funding. With that in mind, officials expect enrollment to fall between 10,500 and 11,000, most likely around 10,800.
