The number of students shifting among school districts increased this year, with Huron Schools accepting 42 students in its first year of open enrollment.
Each student who enrolls in another district takes $5,732 in state funding with them, which means the open-enrolled students will provide a financial boost that offsets the hit Huron takes when former students leave.
Perkins Schools, meanwhile, took in more students this year than last year. Numbers are still in flux this early in the school year, but as of Friday, Perkins had enrolled 424 students from other districts, nearly 100 more than last year.
Sandusky residents also make up a majority of the students who open-enrolled at Perkins Schools -- about 88 percent.
