Greendale— An increase in enrollment for the 2012-13 school year met last year's projections, Greendale School District officials said.
The district enrolled 17 more students — both resident and non-resident — this year, Julie Grotophorst, director of Human Resources, reported to the board Monday.
The district's total enrollment grew from 2,627 in 2012 to 2,644 this year.
Resident enrollment increased by 31 students, an exact match to the projection made last year.
"We generally budget conservatively based upon the enrollment projection, so this increase in enrollment is very positive for the district," Grotophorst said.
The number of Open Enrollment students, however, fell just short of the 2012 projection of 319, coming in at 315.
"The reason for the decrease is that there were some changes in residencies," Grotophorst said. "Some of the Open Enrollment students who were attending (the schools) moved into the district and became resident students. In addition, some Open Enrollment students left the area completely."
More Greendale resident students enrolled in other school districts this year as well, with 46 Open Enrolling in other districts, compared to 42 students last year. In addition, five Greendale students attend Milwaukee Public Schools through Chapter 220.
