Student enrollment in D.C.'s public schools has increased this year, according to preliminary, unaudited data released today.
Enrollment in the traditional and charter school system increased by almost four percent this academic year compared to last year. The unaudited results show an overall increase of approximately 3,100 students, pushing total District-wide student enrollment to more than 83,000 students.
These preliminary findings show an enrollment increase of slightly more than two percent for DCPS. In public charter schools, there's been a more than six percent increase. This increase includes an additional 440 students enrolled in pre-kindergarten and more than 1,000 students enrolled in adult education classes.
For the past four years, the D.C. public school system has seen an increase in enrollment, though enrollment increases have been most pronounced in the growing charter school system, which now educates 44 percent of all students.
The final audited enrollment numbers will be available in February 2014.
