You all may remember the post from a week or so ago quoting Neighbor Newspapers saying that CSD enrollment was at 97.5% of the projection? Welp, in the run up to the start of school, enrollments begin to flood in again. Here are the latest figures courtesy of the Superintendent Phyllis Edwards’ materials for the next School Board meeting.
As noted in the post title, while the projection seems to be spot on for another school year, Kindergarten has grown from last year and has already surpassed this year’s estimate by 36 students. However, it still remains in the realm of the size of the 400+ students in each grade from K-3.
The Superintendent’s letter to the Board also includes these two paragraphs about enrollment with a note on annexation…
Our enrollment continues to rise. A new updated sheet is included for your review. During the second and third weeks of July, just prior to the opening of school, staff has registered over 100 families.
I will employ Tom Sayre, from Sizemore, to review the updated information and provide a new enrollment projection. In October, it is expected that the city will share plans for annexation and the enrollment data will again need to be revised. As we have been in all the years of my tenure, we are on top of the projections for the future.
