Schools making adjustments as enrollment drops

City News Service

The San Diego Unified School District on Monday reported a slight drop in enrollment this year, compared to the previous academic year.

The district reported 134,053 students enrolled, as of Sept. 30, in pre-kindergarten programs through 12th grade, in both district-run and charter schools, as well as in pre-school and infant programs. That’s 857 fewer students than were enrolled last year, according to district spokesman Jack Brandais.

The number of students in district schools in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade totaled 117,804, down by 1,683 students from 2010, Brandais said.

Enrollment was 1,747 below the projected figure used for budget and staffing, which means some schools will need to reduce staff while others add staff or remain unaffected, he said.

Enrollment increased to 16,249 students — 826 more than last year — in the district’s 42 charter schools, according to Brandais, who noted that one campus was added.

“The enrollment number does not alter our course for the upcoming school year,” Superintendent Bill Kowba said.“We remain focused on advancing student achievement and preparing all students for success in their choice of college and career.”
