At the start of the 2013-2014 school year the district had 5,500 students. Due to a wave of immigrant children entering the district, the enrollment count increased to 6,200 by the end of the year. Dr. Mary Bourque, the superintendent, characterized the increase as "dramatic" and explained that "It’s a big strain in terms of being able to address the needs without knowing ahead of time that those will be the needs." Many are from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras and immigrated illegally. Of the new students, 75 arrived from Arizona and Texas and 285 directly arrived from outside the United States.
