The Randolph School District has started the new school year with enrollment about equal to last year, challenging the administration once again to find enough classroom space for all students.

The K-5 elementary level enrollment is at 388, down slightly from 390 last year. Preschool enrollment (ages three and four) is at 71, up from 64 last year. The preschool rooms are housed in the same wing of the school as the elementary grades. A new preschool room was fashioned out of a meeting space off of the cafeteria this year.

Middle school/high school principal Ben Fisher says Randolph has about 8 students doing PSEO (Post Secondary Enrollment Option) this year; some are full-time, some are part-time and still taking some classes at Randolph. They are still students at Randolph getting dual credit from college and high school.

Fisher says they currently have four students taking Dakota County Technical College classes, a program different than PSEO.

Fisher says they have mobile computer labs in the high school that every student or teacher that wants access to technology is utilizing. The teachers use the mobile labs on a daily basis and students are using them for many different assignments.
