A few weeks ago, we talked about pupil projections. Every 3-4 years the state publishes their projections for enrollment in each district. These projections may be modified by the district based on current enrollment trends. Yesterday, I submitted EISD’s pupil projections through the 2010-2011 school year. The numbers submitted are below:
|07-08 Final||08-09 Estimate||09-10 Projected||10-11 Projected|
|Total Refined ADA||1455.393||1440||1450||1460|
|Special Ed FTEs|
The above numbers will be used by the state to help plan their budget and to provide a basis for funding our district. It is important to remember that we still must earn all state aid. The numbers above are only estimates and our final state aid will be based on actual attendance.
A few notes:
The column labeled 08-09 estimate is based on actual enrollment and attendance through the second six weeks.
Most of the 09-10 and 10-11 columns are based on a very modest growth. We currently do not have as many students enrolled as in the past. However, that trend is likely to change.
The state estimates for the 09-10 and 10-11 (which were not included because of space issues) were substantially larger than our actual enrollment.
The 07-08 Final column contains the actual enrollment and attendance information from the 2007-2008 school year.
If you have any questions regarding any of these numbers, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
