ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Loudon County's schools chief says the student population is expected to grow by 2,000 a year for the forseeable future.
 Schools head Edgar Hattrick said that the student population was 14,000 when he took over 21 years ago and now is about 68,000. He predicts that enrollment could eventually reach 100,000 based on current zoning.
 To handle that growth, the county opened a new high school and elementary school this year and two more high schools are expected to open by 2015. The county now has 13 high schools.
