An influx of students could result in swelled classrooms in the Palmerton Area School District.
Superintendent Carol Boyce informed the school board on Tuesday that the district had 87 new students enroll in the district, compared with just 43 withdrawals.
"We have a net gain of 44 students, which is going to make some classrooms expand," Boyce said. "It's good for our state subsidy, but difficult for teaching."
However, Boyce said the situation "doesn't warrant the addition of additional staff."
