School Committee members said they expect to receive a report on those numbers at a future meeting.
The district administration needs to do more research before it presents the School Committee the specific number of students who have left Swampscott for private schools. School Committee member Jaren Landen had requested the information last month. The departing student information compiled by the superintendent's office as of the last School Committee meeting, last week, was incomplete, according to Committee Chairman Larry Beaupre. The district did not have the number of students lost to at least some parochial schools including St. John's Prep. The chairman expects the information will be available at a future meeting.

Swampscott High steps into a new school year. Thirty-five more students than expected have enrolled, the principal said.
Freshmen will have the high school to themselves today and all students are scheduled to report on Wednesday.

There are 16 new upperclassmen and 19 new freshmen, he said last week. "So my numbers are growing," he said. The principal will not have a final tally on the enrollment until school starts. He said some of the students come from families that moved into town, some are transferring from an area charter school and, at least one student, decided against attending a private school. The high school will also have some new faces, as well as some familiar faces in new positions. Here is a list as …
