Did you know that the Prince George School District’s elementary school student population increased, as of September 30th, 2013?
The school district enrollment information is public information – the most recent year’s data comes from the Ministry of Education’s website: http://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/apps/imcl/imclWeb/Home.do
Our data goes back to the 1991/1992 school year. In all that time, for all years before, registration has declined for the elementary school (K to 7) population. (Secondary school (8-12) population has only declined since 1998, but some programs may have been counted differently before that time.)
But this year – for the first time, in over 20 years – the number of students enrolled in Kindergarten to grade 7 actually increased, as projected by both the district and the Ministry of Education. Secondary schools, and overall enrollment, is still declining – but the long decline in the elementary school population seems to now be stabilizing.
