Ballard Certified Enrollment
Final enrollment numbers for the 2023/2024 school year were reported by Board Secretary Amber Jungst. Overall the district saw a 13.23 student decrease for the upcoming school year. Open enrollment out of the District was consistent with last year, with a slight decrease in dual enrollment students. Open enrollment into the District increased by 13.2 students, with preschool enrollment up 15 (preschool enrollment is counted at a .5 rate for funding purposes). The swing from graduating a larger senior class in 2023 and a smaller incoming K class for 2023/2024 year had the largest impact on the overall enrollment numbers.
