School enrollment projected to decline

The preliminary numbers have been counted and Livingstone Range School Division enrollment is projected to decline, but not as much as it could.
The school board was presented Feb. 8 the projected figures for Sept. 30, 2011 by associate superintendent for business services Don Olsen.
“The clear picture is that it will likely decline in some fashion,” Olsen said.
The decline in enrollment will probably not be as much as projected.
The projected enrollment for Sept. 30, 2011 is 3,450.5.
That is down from the 3,545.5 students projected on Sept. 30, 2010, and down from the 3,669.5 actual enrollment at Sept. 30, 2010.
“It’s sad news but not as sad as it could be,” school board chairman Dick Peterson said.
These numbers will be used for budget purposes, but will be adjusted as the actual enrollment figures become available.
The projected numbers for Sept. 30, 2011 are broken down as follows, in terms of full-time equivalent students:
