Things are not looking good at EPISD when considering enrollment numbers.
Last year in EPISD getting smaller faster we wrote about the district losing about 1,400 students between the 2017 and 2018 school years.
The district evidently tracks these numbers in two hour increments.
Here is the latest report:
As of August 27, 2018 the district showed enrollment of 57,103 students.
As of August 20, 2019 the district was showing 54,813.
We should expect the 2019 number to rise a bit but as of August 20 they are down 2,290 students.
I don’t know how much the state plans to pay the district for each student this year. In past years it has been over $5,000 per student.
If they end up with a loss of 2,000 students and the state pays $5,000 each they will have a $10 million drop in revenue.
We deserve better
