Livingstone Range School Division student enrollment shows rare increase

Preliminary enrollment in Livingstone Range School Division increased from last year, and is up from projections for the first time in a long time.
Associate superintendent for business services Jeff Perry presented the preliminary enrollment at the board’s Sept. 8 meeting.
“This is preliminary and preliminary by definition means not final,” Perry cautioned. “Come the end of September these numbers could be a little different.”
“They could go up, they could go down.”
The total enrollment as of Sept. 3 is 3,403.5 students and has increased by 22 full-time equivalent students from last year.
The enrollment has increased 138 students over projections.
Enrollment is calculated with each student from Grade 1 to 12 counted as one full-time equivalent (FTE) student, and Kindergarten students each counting as 0.5 FTE students.
