It's back-to-school for students this week in the Akron Public School District. Superintendent David James said they are prepared this year for any last minute changes or adjustments.
"I have a lot of [substitute teachers] on standby because the first week of school we have to make some adjustments," said James.
James said the district won't know the final number of how many students are enrolled in the district until they conduct three enrollment checks within the next three weeks.
The district should have some solid enrollment numbers by Friday, September 13.
James said he's going into this school year focusing on academics, but he is also looking at restoring some extra-curricular activities (foreign language and music courses) during after-school hours.
"There's some things that I really have to work out, but I hope to have something in place as soon as second semester, so that will be after Christmas break."
The district had to eliminate middle school sports last year due to budget cuts. They'll will have to wait on state funding to see what money could be used to restore the programs.
