With Manatee County students headed back to school on Monday, the Manatee County School District released some "fun facts" in advance of the 2015-16 school year.
Check some of the interesting figures below:
48,000 students are expected to head to school Monday
64 total schools will open Monday -- 51 traditional (33 elementary, 11 middle, 7 high), 12 charters and Manatee Technical College
Never miss a local story.
6,100 total employees will be ready to greet the new kids
1,000 new students are expected to join the county
5 new principals will start on Monday, three of them are first time Manatee County principals
216 buses will carry 16,000 students a day, traveling 20,000 miles and using 4,000 gallons of fuel
15,000 breakfasts and 30,000 lunches are served daily. Officials expect breakfast numbers to go up this year.
The real question: How many of those 48,000 students will cry as they say goodbye to summer on the first day? And how many parents will celebrate?
