HERMISTON - The Hermiston School District increased its weighted enrollment by 106 students, according to the Oregon Department of Education, and cut its budget gap from $680,000 to around $200,000. The Average Daily Membership numbers are based on the December census of all Oregon school districts.

The cut in the budget shortfall was released in a letter sent by superintendent Fred Maiocco to district staff. The increased enrollment was largely due to higher attendance at the new alternative school, Hilltop Junior-Senior School, on Punkin Center Road.
