More kids in Hillsborough schools



Hillsborough County's school district is on track to grow again, according to first-day enrollment numbers.

The district said 190,814 students reported to school, up nearly 4,000 from the first day of school in 2013. While it's too soon to say how many were in charter schools and how many in district-run schools, the district expects both populations to grow, reaching a total of approximately 205,000 when families return from summer vacations.

Enrollment has been growing for the past three years.

The district also was pleased with its new relationship with kelly Services, which now provides substitute teachers. The system filled 99.6 percent of openings on Tuesday, up from less than 80 percent under the old system.
