School enrollment down; but higher than projected

Student enrollment in Livingstone Range School Division continues to decline but the numbers are higher than projected for budgeting.
Trustees last week viewed the Sept. 12 enrollment figures presented by associate superintendent for business affairs Don Olsen.
The preliminary enrollment is 3605.5 full-time equivalent students which is up 155 from the projected number but down 64 students from Sept. 30, 2010.
Funding provided by the provincial government is based on the number of full-time equivalent students at Sept. 30.
“It’s good from where we were budget-wise,” Olsen said.
The enrollment numbers of full-time equivalent students as of Sept. 12 are:

  • Granum school — 59.5, which is 3.5 more than projected and 29.5 less than last year, noting transportation changes and the closure of the Fresh Start program have reduced enrollment.
