MU shouldn't be D4. Heck I hear they are closer to D6 now. Is that true?
MU has 2 very small classes in the high school now. They would be a small d5 if the state wasn't using enrollment numbers from 2 school years ago.

I wish MU still got $$$ from the gov't like they had more kids, but of course every other agency has managed to count students correctly.

MU boys number (from FEB of '19) is 204. Reality is closer to 165.

Yeah. I think the new developments that are being built in West Milton will help but that's a few years away. We could see them D6 soon. Bethel, Miami East and Northridge will all be bigger than Milton.
Miami County schools by size:
Troy
Piqua
Tipp
Bethel
Milton
East
Covington
Troy Chr?
Bradford?
Newton?

Dograt, can you validate this?

I drive school bus for Bethel and can tell you that there will be up to 50 players in grades 9-12 this year. There are around 10 or more players in each class for the bees...And their could be enough to field a jv team. The freshmen team has a player who transferred last year to Bethel as an eighth grader, i dont know where from but his name is Cameron Ahrens. I dont know what he'll bring to the football field but he's about 6'5 210 and first noticed him on the eight grade basketball team last year. There are easily 15+ participants each for the 7th and 8th grade levels so far this summer. But as we all know, its too early to tell how many will stick around and contribute over the season. Our school is so crowded, we have students living in the district attending Miami East but we have just as many kids transferring here as they do transferring out. And they are currently looking for a strength and conditioning coach to assist the kids in starting a weight and physical training program.

I see they are dismantling the house and barns located on the land owned by the district just north of the present school footprint. Planning to build a new school on that location?

Yes that is where the new K-5 school and football stadium complete with all weather track are going. Not sure what else is going in there but the school district had purchased that land some time ago but some think they shouldve put the new school up by carriage trails. As an observation and from what several alums have told me. Most of the alums didnt want the levy to pass because most of them couldnt afford it and always thought the township would stay rural because it was what they were accustomed too....Now as for me, i was born, raised and schooled in another part of the state and as outsider employed at bethel, for years bethel was just a country township school with 35-65 (about 500-600 kids in k-12 total) kids in each class. I dont know how they got by with the income all those years because there is hardly any town or businesses to produce revenue, but a year or two before Carriage trails was built, the school got in the red and had to make cuts to the point of almost closing the school. Carriage Trails has grown steadily over the 10 years, and has added about 1000 students in that time, and the construction still continues at a slow pace. However it will never get south of US 40 between 202 and 201, However there could be some more development off of Palmer Road on the southeast corner of the interesection with 40 because some land got sold but who knows. There has some development down Dayton Brandt Road as some housing tracts are being located along dayton brandt towards aginbroad so that is bringing in more kids. Your only as good as your local school board as they have been criticized for the addition of the new gym that nobody wanted along with the addition and parking lot as they wanted the board to build the new campus and football stadium then. So it hasnt been without controversy I see they are dismantling the house and barns located on the land owned by the district just north of the present school footprint. Planning to build a new school on that location?s
