LIVINGSTON - Enrollment in Livingston Parish schools topped the 25,000 mark when the parish saw an influx of more than 575 new students.

Superintendent Bill Spear says the parish has gained an average of 415 students per year during the past 15 years.

Spear said the number of students enrolled Thursday was 25,361, up 579 from last year's 24,782.

The continual influx of students in Livingston Parish has required the district to expand and build anew in several areas, including Denham Springs, where two expansion projects were completed and dedicated Wednesday, and Watson, where construction at the new Live Oak High School is ongoing.
