MILTON, Del.- With the 2013 school year under way, school district leaders in Sussex County say they are dealing with an increasing overpopulation problem.

Modular classrooms have been setup outside several schools in the Cape Henlopen School District, like at Milton Elementary School. According to Superintendent Bob Fulton, state projections show school districts in the county will have to find room for thousands of addition students in the coming years.

"It's a good problem to have," said Fulton. "More families are moving to Lewes, Rehoboth, and Milton, and it's easy to see why."

Fulton says Cape Henlopen's student population is growing faster percentage-wise than any other district in Delaware.

However, there are other school districts dealing with overpopulation problems. Dr. Susan Bunting, Superintendent of the Indian River School District, said her district is currently adding classrooms to keep up with the increase.

The Cape Henlopen School District is waiting on approval from the Delaware Department of Education for a fifth elementary school, Fulton said.
