As part of the agenda items included for the Decatur School Board’s April 1st meeting is updated enrollment figures compared to CSD’s projections. Registration for new 4-12 grade students just opened on March 17th, so this is an early look at those levels, while kindergarten registration opened at the beginning of March.
Enrollment in many grades is still below projected enrollment levels, while grades 10-12 have already exceeded it. In a March 2013 Atlanta Magazine piece on CSD closing its tuition program, Superintendent Phyllis Edwards noted that the main registration period was generally in “late spring or summer”.
In total, there are already 66 more students enrolled than went to CSD last year. At this early stage there are 319 spaces before CSD hits its projection, with 90 of those in kindergarten.
The first day of school is August 4th.
