Kansas School Enrollment Up In 2013

KSAL StaffOctober 29, 2013

Preliminary enrollment figures show the number of Kansas students attending public schools grew by less than 1 percent this fall.

The raw figures disclosed Tuesday by the Kansas Department of Education were based on the Sept. 20 enrollment count. The figures show there were nearly 460,000 full-time equivalent students attending Kansas public schools.

The figure is different than the headcount enrollment which counts actual students in attendance. However, students who are in kindergarten are counted as halftime students. Actual headcount figures won’t be released until enrollment numbers are audited.

Legislators use the number of full-time-equivalent students to base state funding, which is currently $3,838 for the 2013-14 school year.
