Resident Enrollment

Public School Resident Enrollment and Private School Resident Enrollment are reported by public school systems and approved private schools twice a year, on October 1 and April 1.  These are "snapshot" counts of the student population on these dates.

For public school systems, the October 1 and April 1 student counts are the student counts used to determine state subsidy amounts.

Resident counts are based on where the students live.  They are counts of students who reside in each school district and are educated at public expense.  Public school district resident counts include: (1) resident students from the local school unit attending schools in the local school unit, plus (2) resident students from the local unit who are tuitioned to other public school units or private schools and who are paid for with public funds. Private school counts are divided into publicly funded and privately funded students.
