Enrollment increases in two Fort Macleod schools

Enrollment in Livingstone Range School Division decreased from last year, but increased from the enrollment projected by school administrators in the spring.
Associate superintendent for business services Jeff Perry presented the final enrollment Oct. 8 to the school board.
“Not a lot has changed,” Perry said, referring to the preliminary numbers he presented Sept. 10.
The final numbers are what enrollment was at the Sept. 30 cut-off, and will be taken forward to review funding.
The total enrollment is 3,447.5, which is an increase over the 3,442 students reported on Sept. 10.
Enrollment has declined by 82 full-time equivalent students from last year.
The good news is enrollment has increased 38.5 students over projections.
Enrollment is calculated with each student from Grade 1 to 12 counted one as one full-time equivalent student, and Kindergarten students each counting as 0.5 students.
