School enrollment expected to continue decline next term

Student enrollment is projected to decline by about 3.4 per cent in Livingstone Range School Division.
Livingstone Range associate superintendent for business services Jeff Perry presented the first projections for the Sept. 30 enrollment at the school board’s Feb. 12 meeting.
Projected enrollment is 3,409 full-time equivalent students which is down 120.5 from the actual Sept. 30, 2012 enrollment.
Perry cautioned these numbers are preliminary based on the knowledge and context going forward from the administrators in all the schools.
“There is a trend that our administrators have been somewhat conservative,” Perry said.
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 students.
