McGaheysville, Va. -- Rockingham County Public Schools is seeing more students in classrooms. School administrators say they began preparing for the growth almost three years ago. The chairman of the school board does not expect overcrowding to be a problem.

"We have worked a little over. We are a hundred students more than last year. At the same time period, which we sort of expected it with the economy improving and the housing market improving. We expected to see some growth," said Dan Breeden, the chairman of the school board.

Breeden said class size continues to be an important issue for Rockingham County Public schools. He would like to see the student teacher ratio between 20 to 1 and 25 to 1.
