School enrollment drops 79 students from last year

The student enrollment in Livingstone Range School Division is down from last year, but up from projections by school administrators in the spring.
Livingstone Range associate superintendent for business services Jeff Perry presented the numbers at the board’s Oct. 9 meeting.
Enrollment is 3,538 full-time equivalent students which is up from the preliminary enrollment of 3,504 students.
Last year’s enrollment was 3,616 students.
Enrollment has declined by 79 students, less than the preliminary total of 112 students from last year, which equates to about 2.4 per cent, down from the three per cent in the Sept. 11 preliminary total.
The good news is enrollment has increased 113 students over projections in the spring.
Enrollment is calculated with each student from Grade 1 to 12 counted as one full-time equivalent student, and Kindergarten students each counting as 0.5 full-time equivalent students.
