Latest district demographic study confirms growth in the south

April 27, 2018

A demographic study affirms that the population in the southern part of the school district is growing while the northern portion is declining. TeamWorks International presented the comprehensive report at the April 26 school board meeting, and highlighted the following:

  • The primary purpose of this study is to enable the district to be proactive in long-term facilities and enrollment planning and decision making.

  • New housing developments and births are on the rise in the south, while birth rates are declining in the north.

  • Schools in the southern part of the district are nearing capacity, and continued growth and/or increases in market share will require more space in those schools than is currently available.

The school board will discuss the study in more detail at a future work session.
