Platte County School District uses enrollment data analysis by grade level and contracts a demographer to predict future enrollment. This information is vital to making decisions to the long-range plan, budget and staffing plan, and educational programs and services. The District’s demographer has provided scenarios which are revisited regularly as economic and other factors change. Additionally, the monitoring of residential and other physical developments within the District’s boundaries allows the District to anticipate and adapt to changes more quickly.
The following demographic profile includes historical information, current trends, and future enrollment projections that assist District leaders in annual budgeting, review of District attendance boundaries, and long-range planning efforts. In this study, a wide range of sources were used, including enrollment data.
