School Board prepares for enrollment decline in 2021-22

The District 64 administration on Thursday presented to the School Board an enrollment report projecting a decrease of 108 students in the coming 2021-22 school year.

The projection is based on current enrollment during the pandemic. A straight roll-over number was used at this time which results in the reduction of 108 students. The reduction is due to large eighth-grade classes exiting and smaller kindergarten classes starting with no additional students entering at other grade levels. These numbers are very conservative at this time.

Once the administration has a clearer picture of what the opening of school in the fall of 2021 will look like, the projections will be updated.
