Chancellor Michelle Rhee's office tells the Washington Post more than 40,000 students were enrolled in D.C. public schools Wednesday, up from 30,000 reported just before the academic year began on Monday.

Late arrivals and an influx of paperwork verifying D.C. residency are thought to have contributed to the increase. But enrollment is still below last year's final number -- about 44,600 students. That's also the number Rhee and the D.C. Council had projected for this year. The official count is taken in October and a CPA audits the results. The final numbers are usually available in March.
