The Akron-Westfield school district saw a significant drop in certified enrollment for school year 2020-21, according to the Le Mars Daily Sentinel.

The final certified count is 575.52 down 48.86 from the previous year.

There was no single reason, although some fairly large families moved out of the district.

Iowa provides a year safety net so the district is guaranteed 101 percent of this year’s funding next year.
