New School Enrollment Figures
The State Department of Education is out with student enrollment figures for this year. Here is the release.
CHEYENNE - Student enrollment for the 2014-2015 school year has
increased from 92,218 to 93,303, according to data compiled by the
Wyoming Department of Education (WDE).
"Our enrollment is up about two percent this year, which is consistent
with Wyoming's overall population growth, according to census data,"
said WDE Data Governance Coordinator Leslie Zimmerschied. "There
were no real surprises."
Laramie County School District 1 remains the state's largest district
with 13,761 students. Natrona County District 1 trails slightly as the
state’s second-largest district with a count of 13,059. Rounding out
a list of the state's five largest districts are Campbell County District
1 (9,134), Sweetwater District 1 (5,719), and Albany County District
The state's smallest district is Sheridan County District 3, which has 84
students; Washakie County District 2, with 91 students, is the state's
second smallest district. Park 16's student population fell to 109.
"Sheridan 3 only decreased by 12 students, but that constitutes the
largest change as a percent of the total enrollment (-12.5%).
Fremont 24 increased by 9.4%, the largest increase in the state this
year," said Zimmerschied.
The enrollment numbers are collected by the Wyoming Department of
Education’s WDE684 Teacher-Course-Student data collection, which
was reported by districts on Oct. 1, 2014. The enrollment is a studentlevel
collection, which counts each individual student including his/
her enrollment and demographic information.
