MIDLAND - When school kicked off last week, Midland saw a hefty increase in students.

On Tuesday, MISD Superintendent Doctor Ryder Warren released an article illustrating the increase.

According to Doctor Warren, as of August 30, the district saw 23,008 kids walk through the door.

That's over 1,500 more than the first day of school last year and 877 more than the last day of school.

The district is looking to make some adjustments to keep up with enrollment such as hiring new teachers and bringing in more portable classrooms.
