Holt Public School District’s student count was down 87 students from last fall’s 5,811 students said Jan Dodge, pupil accounting and data coordinator of the Holt Public School District’s curriculum office. Michigan school districts statewide underwent count day on Wednesday Oct. 1, 2014, through which Holt Public Schools counted 5,724 students. Because of the count drop, the Holt Public School District will receive less state aid than last year. However, the district will not have to cut resources and services because of accurate budget estimates and financial planning, said Dodge.
